“Today’s strike by FBU members has now started. It runs until 2pm - be safer, be slower, be vigilant” a Cambs fire service spokesman said at noon.

The strike comes in the aftermath of a massively busy day for the service as it dealt with 999 calls over flooding – the bulk from the March area.

The spokesman said: “It’s not just the crews on the ground that has been busy with flooding.

“Our staff up in Combined Fire Control took 277 999 calls about flooding in Cambridgeshire between 12.45pm yesterday and 8.30am today.
