FIREFIGHTERS are on strike today between 10am and 5pm.

Although resilience arrangements have been made by Essex County Fire and Rescue Service, the service is advising the public to be safer, slower and vigilant.

In real emergencies, residents can still call 999.

The dispute is between the Fire Brigade Union and the Government over proposed changes to firefighters’ pensions.
