FBU pickets outside Gipton fire station

FBU pickets outside Gipton fire station

Around a dozen pickets gathered outside Gipton fire station in Leeds, as part of 24hr strike action, angry that government minister, Brandon Lewis, is refusing to reveal alternative proposals that might settle the long running dispute over their pensions.

But anger wasn’t just reserved for the Tories, local Labour MP Yvette Cooper had also refused to answer direct questions over whether she supported the strike or thought that the FBU had a just case.
