Firefighters across North Yorkshire and Humberside call off strike action after progress is made in pensions row.

A planned strike by firefighters in England and Wales will no longer go ahead - the walkout was due to start at 6.30pm this evening.

The Fire Brigades Union says it's agreed a deal over the retirement of officers aged between 55 and 60 and says firefighters won't now have to quit their job early on a reduced pension.
