HALTON firefighters joined forces with colleagues across the country to strike again today.

They walked out for two hours this morning from 6.30am to 8.30am in their ninth stoppage in a dispute over pensions.

They are protesting over Government plans to raise their retirement age from 55 to 60 and increase their pension contributions.

Strikers said they would return to work if there was a major emergency.
