Dorset Fire Authority members have voted to merge our fire services with Wiltshire's.

The result of the vote depends on Wiltshire Fire Authority's own meeting next week.

A public consultation carried out in Dorset put forward three options for the future of the service.

Dorset Fire and Rescue say merging with Wiltshire was the most popular choice.

Up to £6M could be saved if the two authorities decide to combine.
