Following local campaigns and a Lib Dem motion to Council urging the return of our fire engines. We have heard that London Fire Brigade has finally decided to return the two fire engines that were taken from Leyton and Chingford.
They were taken away last year, along with another 25 fire engines across London to cover for the possibility of industrial action by the Fire Unions.
Last Friday the Unions came to an agreement with the Fire Brigade so the engines should be returned.
This is good news for local residents whose safety could have been put at risk.
