Campaigners oppose Blaina fire station closure plan

Campaigners are opposing the proposed closure of a fire station in a community where two firefighters lost their lives 17 years ago.

South Wales Fire and Rescue wants to close Blaina fire station in Blaenau Gwent and remove an engine from Cwmbran, Torfaen, as part of a review.

But there have been warnings that the Blaina closure would put lives at risk.

The chief fire officer said town would still be "well supported" by other stations.

Paul Heaney reports.
