Sacking row over firefighter's outburst at PM

A firefighter whose expletive-laden rant aimed at Australia's prime minister went viral says he has been sacked.

Paul Parker's outburst encapsulated public anger towards Scott Morrison, but the volunteer now claims it got him fired from the New South Wales Rural Fire Service (RFS) over the outburst.

Both the RFS and Mr Morrison have denied his claim.
