Firefighters across the area are to strike today.

The action comes as part of the Fire Brigade Union’s long-running dispute over pensions.

Members of the FBU in England and Wales will walk out for five hours from noon today, between 2pm tomorrow and 2am on Sunday, and between 10am and 3pm on Sunday.

Hampshire Fire and Rescue Service has made alternative arrangements for fire cover.

The union said the strikes could be halted immediately if the government made a revised pensions offer that ‘takes the evidence into account’.
