Essex: Fire strike "solid"
A SPOKESMAN for the Fire Brigades Union (FBU) described yesterday's one-hour walk-out as solid.
Keith Hanscombe, East Anglian spokesman for the FBU, praised fire chiefs for their response to the industrial action and said talks were continuing.
He said: "We are very pleased the fire chiefs decided to abandon plans to stop pay for the whole 15-hour night shift and lock us out as that would have affected the Olympic torch relay.
"Talks will continue between now and the next strike date."
