The fire-fighters' second eight-day strike has been called off after the Fire Brigades Union and the employers accepted an invitation from the Advisory, Conciliation and Arbitration Service to explore resolving the dispute.

There is no new pay offer on the table. Both sides were set to meet ACAS officials separately, with the hope that negotiations between the two sides can begin next week.

FBU general secretary Andy Gilchrist said the ACAS mediation gave hope that the current deadlock could be resolved.

He said: 'We hope all parties will grasp this opportunity to find an agreeable settlement.'

The employers said the talks would be 'purely exploratory, with a possible view of brokering discussions.'
