I am worried about the fire service.
This morning, whilst crossing the market square I was approached by a fireman with a clipboard. He asked me for the town hall and Marks and Spencer, seeming surprised when I told him Whitby did not have a Marks and Spencer’s.
He turned away checking his clipboard with mobile to his ear.
Later, on Radio 4’s World at One there was a discussion about the reorganisation of the fire service - apparent depletion.
I repeat: I am worried about the fire service.
