A HISTORIC partnership between the fire service that serves Hampshire and the Isle of Wight could be agreed upon.

The Hampshire Fire and Rescue Authority will consider an agreement, which would see Hampshire providing leadership for the Isle of Wight Fire and Rescue service, at its meeting on Friday.

The Isle of Wight service would still remain, with no station closures or loss of firefighters.
