Hemel Hempstead MP Mike Penning says the firefighters who will be taking part in their longest strike yet tomorrow are ‘putting people’s lives at risk’.

The 24 hours of action will begin at 9am – and a second walk-out will last from 10am to 5pm on Saturday, June 21.

They will be the 13th and 14th strikes by the Fire Brigades Union in protest to pension changes by the government that could see firefighters working until 60. They currently retire at 55.
