Firefighters strike in South London

There was solid support at South London fire stations for the national strike last night. Firefighters walked out between  6 pm and 10 pm over plans to raise their retirement age from 55 to 60 and increase their pension contributions. There will be another strike between the same times next Saturday night.

Here's a few pictures (sourced via twitter) from local picket lines:
