Fire closure plan 'will delay responses in 40 wards'

The plan to close a dozen fire stations in London will slow down response times across the capital, according to data from London Fire Brigade.

It suggests they would miss targets in more than 40 neighbourhoods.

The worst affected area would be Clapham Town.

BBC London's Political Editor Tim Donovan speaks to Darren Johnson, Green Party London Assembly Member, and Paul Embery of the London Fire Brigades Union.
