Woolwich lost its fire station yesterday as its engine left the building for the last time.
There are eighteen residential fires in London each day and over one hundred London schools reported fires in 2011.
London Mayor Boris Johnson has announced that up to 17 London fire stations are at risk of closure with 17 firefighting appliances, such as fire engines going as well. On top of this London is to lose over 600 members of its brave firefighting crews.
The safety and security of Londoners is at risk as a result of cuts to emergency services being pushed through by the Conservatives. Conservative cuts have targeted the police, fire brigade, ambulance service and A&Es.
