Firefighters on strike at Doncaster Fire Station.

Striking Firefighters taking part in a 24-hour walk out gathered with placards outside Doncaster today in a row with the government over pensions.

The walk-out is the longest strike yet in the three-year dispute.

The Fire Brigades Union (FBU) said the government’s proposals were “unaffordable and unfair”

But the Department for Communities and Local Government (DCLG) accused the union of causing problems by “disrupting” discussions.
