25 September 2013 Last updated at 20:58 BST

Firefighters in Wales have returned to work after a four-hour strike in a row over pensions.

Fire chiefs said crews had been in place to tackle 999 calls during the walk-out from noon to 16:00 BST on Wednesday.

Military personnel were on standby in south Wales with calls elsewhere being prioritised on "protection of life".

Unions oppose plans to make members work until 60 but ministers say public sector pensions must be "sustainable".

Matt Murray reports.
