Essex firefighters last night launched their seventh strike in the dispute over£1.5m in spending cuts to the service, reports the Financial Times (p7).

The 24-hour strike will see around 1,000 Fire Brigade Union members walk out. The union will meet Essex CC for talks today.

The council has spent around£500,000 in emergency cover during the strike which the union claims could have paid for 25 officers.
