South Holland residents are to be hit by another firemen’s strike next week as a row with the Government over pensions goes on.

Members of the Fire Brigades Union (FBU), which represents more than 400 firefighters in Lincolnshire, are to take strike action on Wednesday November 13 between 10am and 2pm.

The dispute is over Government plans for firemen to work until they are 60 which the union claims is too old to be fighting fires.

Previous strikes have taken place on September 25, last Friday and Monday, with Lincolnshire Fire and Rescue dealing with 13 callouts on the three days.
