Michael Mullaney and the Pensioners' Action Group are fighting the cuts to Hinckley's Firefighters

A petition to stop cuts at Hinckley Fire Station has received a massive response. Leicestershire Fire Authority are proposing to cut eight Firefighters from Hinckley Fire Station.

So far over 3,000 people have signed the petition run by the Pensioners Action Group and the Liberal Democrats' parliamentary candidate Michael Mullaney to protest against these cuts.

Denise Wood from the Pensioners Action Group said "The response from local people has been fantastic. We have run many petitions in recent years and this has been easily one of the most popular."

Michael Mullaney Liberal Democrat parliamentary candidate for Hinckley and Bosworth said "It is clear that local people are firmly opposed to the plans to cut Hinckley's Firefighters. I hope that this massive response will force the Fire Authority to drop their ill-thought out plans."
