Eastbourne Community Fire Station was in darkness for four hours this afternoon (Wednesday) as members of the Fire Brigade Union staged a strike.

Union members at the Whitley Road station headed over to a picket line in Brighton and it was left to members of Unite to demonstrate on their behalf in front of the station.

The firefighters are striking as part of a dispute over pensions.

As the Eastbourne station remained in darkness during the four hour strike, senior fire officers were providing a contingency cover service from the Territorial Army Centre in Seaside.
