MORE firefighter strikes will take place in coming weeks - including on New Year’s Eve.

The Fire Brigades Union has announced three dates and time periods for industrial action.

These are planned to take place on December 24 from 7pm to midnight; December 31 from 6.30pm to 12.30am, and January 3 between 6.30am and 8.30am.

A Hampshire Fire and Rescue Service spokesman said: ‘We would like to reassure the public that emergency calls will be answered and responded to.’
