Firefighters in Derbyshire are to stage strikes over three days in May in a long-running pensions row.

The Fire Brigades’ Union (FB) has already held a series of strikes at plans for a later retirement age and changes to pensions.

DO YOU SUPPORT STRIKING FIREFIGHTERS? HAVE YOUR SAY IN OUR ONLINE POLL TO THE RIGHT.

A statement on the FBU website accused the Government of “burying its head in the sand”.

Ministers said the FBU had “one of the most generous pension schemes in all the public sector”.

FBU members will walk out for five hours from 12pm on May 2, between 2pm and 2am on May 3 and between 10am and 3pm on May 4.
