Firefighters and 999 control staff in Essex are preparing for further strikes on against job losses on 13 and 14 June. Alan Chinn-Shaw, secretary of the Fire Brigades Union in Essex, said: "These are unprecedented cuts which would see more than a quarter of all Essex frontline firefighters axed."

Bosses at the Rotherham Advertiser have served a compulsory redundancy notice to only one staff member - National Union of Journalists representative Phil Turner. Members will strike against the move on 11 June.
