Residents in Lichfield and Burntwood have been thanked for their vigilance during the latest walkout by firefighters.

No major incidents were recorded across Staffordshire during the strike, which took place from 10am to 2pm yesterday (November 13).

The county’s chief fire officer, Peter Dartford, said: “Clearly communities have once again taken responsibility for their safety resulting in there being no serious incidents requiring our attendance.

“I appreciate that people took heed of our messages to take care when out and about driving and in their homes.

“The advice is important and potentially life-saving but it is all too easy to become complacent.

“I would like to say thank-you to the Staffordshire community for taking our advice seriously.”

Only four minor call-outs were received across the county during the latest strike.
