Regional fire control rooms scrapped

The Fire Brigades Union in the South West has welcomed the decision to scrap a multi-million pound scheme to set up regional fire control rooms.

The project would have seen emergency calls made in Bristol and Bath answered at a new call centre in Taunton.

But the scheme has been long overdue and the union claims it has already cost tax payers £200 million.

Now the coalition government has reached a settlement with the main contractor to halt the project.
