Call for control rooms to be scrapped

The Government is being urged to go through with it's pledge to scrap regional fire control rooms.

The Fire Bridgades Union says both David Cameron and Nick Clegg made election pledges to end the project, but the Government is still reviewing the situation.

The scheme would see emergency fire calls made in Wiltshire, Gloucestershire, Somerset, Bath and Bristol answered in a new centre in Taunton.

The Fire Brigades Union claims while it is sat empty, the centret is coasting tax payers in the South West £5000 a day.
