VIDEO: Firefighters go on strike across region

FIREFIGHTERS have gone on a four-hour strike this afternoon over disagreements over pensions (Wednesday, September 25).

Four firefighters walked-out of Worthing Fire Station at midday, but retained firefighters are covering for the duration of the strike.

There is no picket line in operation.

Retained firefighters are on standby as usual at Shoreham.

Group station manager for Worthing Roy Barraclough explains the provision in the video above.

For a report on why firefighters are striking, from the perspective of Worthing firefighter Andy Hockley, see this week’s Herald, out tomorrow.
