London Fire Fights to take industrial action
London fire fighters have voted to take industrial action in a row over shifts and new contracts.

Members of the Fire Brigades Union voted 9 to one in support of steps that would stop short of a strike but would result in a ban on overtime and a withdrawal of good will.

The London Fire Brigade wants to change the shift pattern to improve efficiency but the Union says the changes would endanger public safety as stations could be closed at night or have fewer staff.

The Union plans another ballot in the coming weeks for a strike.

THE POPE VISITS SOUTH WEST LONDON

The Pope is calling Wimbledon Village home during his tour of London.

He's staying at the Apostolic Nunciature in Parkside. Last night hundreds of people turned out to welcome him off his flight from Heathrow.

He was greeted by London's Mayor Boris Johnson before receiving a warm welcome and applause at the Nunciature.

Jackie's Lucy Mayer was there when he arrived shortly after 10pm.


We asked Father Stephen Wang why he chose Wimbledon.


After a restful first night, Pope Benedict spent this morning at St Mary's University College in Strawberry Hill.

He addressed the crowds there.


These pupils sang for him as part of the Big Assembly, attended by over three thousand children.


Principal Dr Arthur Naylor told Jackie News it was the biggest event in the school's history.


The College was specially chosen by the Vatican as Dr Naylor explains . . .


Surrey's Catholic Schools will be watching this weekend's events very closely.

Millie Prior attends Our Lady Immaculate in Tolworth. The ten year old had some interesting questions for the Pope - if she were to ever meet him.


Pope Benedict's meeting the Archbishop of Canterbury - in a show of unity between the Catholic and Anglican churches.

It's the first time a pope's been to Lambeth Palace.

He'll then deliver a speech to both houses of Parliament - and the day will be rounded off by a multi-faith evening prayer service at Westminster Abbey.

Marc said: "The 'Pythian Rhapsody' concert was arranged as a tribute to my brother. We arranged to play Queen songs as this was my brother’s favourite band and it meant so much to do this for him. It was a fantastic night with a great atmosphere, and I hope that it was an occasion that will be remembered for a long time by those who attended."
