Today is the first day of the firefighters’ strikes, but the assistant chief fire officer says there will be no risk to Oxfordshire residents.

Fire Brigade Union (FBU) members will walk out from noon to 5pm today, 2pm- 2am tomorrow and 10am-3pm on Sunday.

ACF Simon Furlong said: “I want to reassure people that every 999 call to the fire services will be answered.”

There is an agreement with the FBU that striking personnel will return to duty if a large or serious incident takes place.
