Have your say

Lincolnshire’s firefighters are on strike today with a picket line outside Grantham fire station.

However, Lincolnshire County council has released a statement this afternoon saying there has only been three call-outs so far today and all have been dealt with “to the same high standard as normal”.

The spokesman said: “So far Lincolnshire Fire and Rescue has responded to three incidents during the strike period: one co-responder in the spilsby area, one RTC at long Sutton and one domestic fire in Sleaford. All incidents have been dealt with in the normal timeframe and to the same high standard as normal.

“We would continue to remind people to take care when going about their daily business, and that there is further safety advice available on and on twitter @lincsfirerescue.”
