Massive cuts to London Fire Service announced

FBU leaflet Protest Against Cuts 21st January

London FBU say the Mayor of London has announced 12 fire stations to close, 18 engines to go and over 400 jobs.

The  BBC report about the station closures says 520 jobs will be lost. It is bad news and ridiculous and dangerous when the London population is rising all the time. FBU says the plans are reckless and wrong.

Paul Embery, London FBU Regional Secretary, says the fire stations earmarked for closure are:

Belsize

Bow

Clapham

Clerkenwell

Downham

Kingsland

Knightsbridge

New Cross

Silvertown

Southwark

Westminster

Woolwich.
