Hundreds of firefighter jobs in Wales threatened

More than 220 firefighters' jobs could be lost in north Wales if its funding is not increased by £3.3m over the next five years, bosses have warned.

The North Wales Fire and Rescue Authority said years of cuts mean core services may be hit in the future.

A range of options include axing 228 jobs and closing seven retained fire stations and removing engines, leaving areas without local part-time support.

The authority is funded from councils via residents' council tax payments.
