Firefighters in Dorset are joining strike action again today (Wednesday 13th November) in the continuing row over pensions.

It'll be the 4th time members of the Fire Brigades Union have walked out over government plans to raise the retirement age from 55 to 60.

Workers will leave their posts at 10am for four hours.

Dorset Fire and Rescue has warned people not to make unnecessary 999 calls.
