THE firefighters strike due to take place tomorrow (October 19) has been called off, local union officials confirmed.

The Fire Brigade Union (FBU) strikes were planned for tomorrow evening over a dispute with the government in changes to firefighter pensions.

However, West Sussex FBU chairman Mick Cambers said the strikes were called off this lunchtime after the government agreed to negotiate with the union.
