Labour has launched a withering attack on Morecambe MP David Morris over proposed cuts to Lancaster fire engines.

Councillors slated Mr Morris for “having the audacity” to slam Lancashire Fire Authority for planning to reduce the number of Lancaster fire engines from two to one when the Government was responsible for slashing costs in the first place.

Speaking at a Lancaster City Council meeting, Councillor Ian Pattison said: “David Morris criticised Lancashire Fire Authority for restructuring their services. I find it really disappointing when he voted to reduce the budget overall.”
