Norfolk firefighters protesting against a change in pension and conditions have announced a second strike.
Crews will be forming pickets outside a number of stations across the county for five hours on Saturday next week.
Firefighters will be walking out from 6.30pm to 11.30pm.
Retained and full-time stations, including Lynn, were closed during the first strike on Wednesday, September 25.
Secretary of the Norfolk branch of the Fire Brigade Union, Kevin Game is appealing for the public’s help.
He said: “We would like the public to understand why we are striking, we don’t want to do this.
“We would like them to get in contact with their MPs to show their concern.”
Firefighters are able to retire at 55 with a pension but the Government has increased the retirement age to 60 and they will be expected to meet the required fitness standard.
The union says those who don’t meet the standard could be dismissed or forced out with a reduced pension.
It is also disputing the Government’s claims of redeployment roles being offered to older firefighters.
The union is unhappy that firefighters pension contributions will rise from 13 per cent to 14 per cent.
