Firefighters are set to take industrial action for the fifth time in three months.
Members of the Fire Brigades Union — including those at Newark Fire Station on Boundary Road — will strike between 6pm and 10pm tomorrow and on Saturday.
A charity that challenged people to help it raise £10,000 in a week reached its target on the final day of fundraising.
Ian Robinson (EU Politics, News Views, November 28) is disingenuous when he says I did not back up my letter of November 14 with statistics.
I don’t see many statistics supporting UKIP pronouncements.
The source of the CBI data I quoted may be found in its document, Our Global Future, which in turn quotes from the Office of National Statistics Pink Book on our balance of trade and other sources too numerous to mention.
Mr Robinson says the simplest thing to do is “to subtract from the net sums collected by the EU from the UK, the sums spent by the EU in the UK.” If only it were that simple.

THE potential consequences of carrying a knife have been starkly illustrated by the tragic death of Nathan Somers. Nathan died from a single stab wound after what started as a play-fight at a party developed into something far more serious.
He was killed by Jemelle Rodney, of Mitcham, Surrey, who in October was sentenced to life imprisonment after being convicted of murder.
Although Rodney had not taken the knife to the party the fact that it was there meant it was available for him to use.
This week, judge Mr Justice Kenneth Parker said if the knife had not been taken to the party Nathan would still be alive.
