With your news now for the East Midlands, I'm Maurice Flynn.

:00:14.:00:16.

Fire fighters have started a new round of industrial action

:00:17.:00:19.

today in their ongoing row with the Government over pensions.

:00:20.:00:22.

Members of the Fire Brigades Union walked out earlier and will again

:00:23.:00:25.

tonight, despite Government claims its offer is among the most generous

:00:26.:00:28.

Along with FBU members in Nottinghamshire, Leicestdrshire,

:00:29.:00:33.

Rutland and Lincolnshire, fire teams will stage daily strikes

:00:34.:00:36.

I know fire fighters who have been in the job for ten or 15 ye`rs,

:00:37.:00:42.

and they have had to plan in their lives, for their fhnancial

:00:43.:00:46.

futures, based on what they were told when they started on the job.

:00:47.:00:49.

But everything is going to change, and not just a little bit.

:00:50.:00:52.

It's a significant change for everyone involved.

:00:53.:00:55.

Meanwhile in Nottingham, a contingency fire crew tackled

:00:56.:00:57.

It had closed London Road as thousands of football fans were

:00:58.:01:01.

heading to the City ground for Forest's first game of the season.

Around half a dozen caravans arrived at Chester Green last night.

:01:17.:01:19.

Some had moved there from another site in Spondon.

:01:20.:01:23.

Police say two people were `rrested for minor public order offences

:01:24.:01:27.

The City Council owns the playing fields and said it had

:01:28.:01:29.

been receiving complaints about fast`moving cars near to

:01:30.:01:32.

A train arrived, collected passengers

:01:33.:01:37.

Not news ` normally, but today it was the first time that

:01:38.:01:41.

happened at Shottle near Turnditch for more than 65 years.

:01:42.:01:45.

The station was being reopened after restoration by voluntders

:01:46.:01:49.

This is the first passenger train to stop at Shottle for decades.

:01:50.:01:56.

It's given a warm welcome as it arrives at the station.

:01:57.:02:03.

It's officially opened by Richard Curzon from nearby

When I was young I used to come and catch a train once a ye`r to

:02:49.:02:52.

As the train leaves for its next stop, there is

:02:53.:03:00.
