West Yorkshire Fire Service received 139 calls during the 24-hour FBU (Fire Brigade Unnion) strike, which ended at 9am today.

A fire serive spokesperson said 54 incidents were attended across the county, with no emergencies going unattended.

Assistant Chief Fire Officer Dave Walton said: “All requests for assistance were met during this 24-hour period. The vast majority of incidents were of a minor nature, however, we attended one very serious incident. This was a road traffic collision involving four casualties, of which one person sadly proved fatal.”
