Fire brigade jobs at risk

SEVENTY-FIVE jobs could be at risk at Cleveland Fire Brigade as the service needs to save £2.5m in the next year.

The news come just months after 69 jobs at Cleveland Fire Brigade were axed, which included 56 firefighters.

And Cleveland looks set to be one of the hardest hit services again ahead of the announcement of the budget for the next financial year.

The matter will be discussed at a Cleveland Fire Authority meeting at its headquaters in Hartlepool tomorrow.

An official statement is expected later today ahead of tomorrow’s meeting.
