Lancashire firefighters are to stage a further eight-day period of strike action in the ongoing national dispute over pension proposals.

The Fire Brigades Union says the current proposals are still unworkable and mean that firefighters will still face dismissal simply because they cannot maintain the high physical fitness requirements necessary until they are 60.

The proposals would also mean that if firefighters opt for early retirement, the reduction in their pension would be unacceptably high.
