Don't expect any help from the fire service. They'll be enjoying their Christmas dinner whilst on strike!

Obviously whoever wrote this article didnt do geography or has the river Severn moved overnight & a new river been discovered (the Twyning!) As for the Fire Service the Tories should remember who rescued Maggie in Brighton & who saved Windsor castle. Do we really want a fire service like ambulance service in Evesham-1 paramedic in a car with back up from 1st responders just to satisfy the response times.
