Firefighters will go on strike today in protest at proposed pension reforms.

They will walk out from 7pm until 12.30am during which time cover will be provided by non-striking full-time personnel and on-call staff.

The Fire Brigades Union is protesting about plans to increase the retirement age of firefighters to 60.

During this time members of the public can call 999 in the case of an emergency.
