The latest in a series of strikes by members of the Fire Brigades Union (FBU) has ended.

Firefighters across the Fylde Coast walked out for seven hours on Saturday, from 10am to 5pm, as part of an ongoing dispute over pensions.

The walkout ended a week of action short of strike, where firefighters refused to complete any voluntary overtime.

Lancashire Fire and Rescue received 17 call outs during the strike, most of which were false alarms.

FBU members hope the latest action will force a meeting with the government over the pension dispute.
