Save Rothwell fire station

Rothwell fire station has been earmarked for closure under radical plans that will see six fire stations in Leeds close and 200 fire fighter jobs be slashed. The local community in Rothwell, Woodlesford, Outlton and Carlton has reacted angrily to the news and is standing shoulder to shoulder with myself and Councillor David Nagle to fight the proposed closure.

    South Leeds is always a dumping ground for the rest of leeds residents (rubbish tips
    and Gipsey camps, motor ways, link roads to name just a few) and we are the first to
    get cuts in services and this one will put lives and property at risk I hope the people
    responsiblle are put on trial for murder at the first fatality

    Excellent news that the citizens of Rothwell are rolling up their sleeves and fighting to keep their local station open. We have set up a site to keep people upto date of news around the closures – http://firecutscostlives.blogspot.co.uk/
