FIREFIGHTERS will be striking around Essex tonight over a pensions row.
Members of the Fire Brigades Union will walk out for five hours from 7pm as the dispute with the Government continues.
During this time incidents will be dealt with by back-up resilience crews around the county.
Another strike is due to take place on New Year's Eve.
