Firefighters to strike tonight

3:01pm Tuesday 24th December 2013

By Oliver Evans

Firefighters will strike from 7pm to midnight as part of an ongoing row over retirement age and pensions.

The dispute is over plans to raise the retirement age from 55 to 60 and for firefighters to take fitness tests.

Fire Brigades Union members will return to work for serious emergencies and Oxfordshire Fire and Rescue Service said it will respond to all 999 calls.
