Firefighters reveal terror attack fears
FIREFIGHTERS in Scotland would be unable to respond to a Manchester Arena-style terror attack in Scottish cities due to a pay dispute, a union leader has warned.
Chris McGlone, Scotland’s most senior Fire Brigades Union official, warned ministers that the dispute posed a threat to public safety. Anti-terror training for Scotland’s emergency services has already been stopped because of a pay row between unions and managers. However, the claims were rejected by SFRS assistant chief officer Lewis Ramsay.
He said it was “100 per cent clear” that it was the union that halted the training.
