Firefighters in South Yorkshire have announced a further eight days of strike action after the Government failed to improve its pension proposals.

They will walk out for two hours every day between noon and 2pm from Saturday, August 9, until Saturday, August 16, and for an hour in the evenings from 10.59pm to 11.59pm.

Firefighters say new proposals are still unworkable and mean they will face early dismissal before they turn 60 because they cannot maintain the high physical fitness requirements necessary for their role.
