A group of London firefighters has won their appeal to overturn an employment tribunal ruling that they were not subject to age discrimination after new pension rules were brought in.

Sir Alan Wilkie, who ruled over the proceedings, stated in the court documents: “In my judgement, the employment judge’s decision on the issue of legitimate aims was correct, did not contain any error of law so the appeals on those grounds fail.
