LONDON, ENGLAND--(Marketwire - June 30, 2008) - The Fire Brigades Union has paid tribute to Terry Fields who represented Merseyside and Cheshire FBU members before entering national politics. Terry Fields was a Merseyside firefighter and FBU ruling national Executive Council member before being elected as MP for Liverpool Broadgreen in 1983.

FBU General Secretary Matt Wrack said: "Terry Fields served the people of Merseyside as a local firefighter for many years before being elected an MP. He was well known and respected within the union and the fire service.

"Terry was always known as a man of honour, honesty and humour. He will be sadly missed and our thoughts are with his family and friends at this time."

Les Skarratts, Merseyside FBU brigade secretary said: "Terry Fields was a great socialist, trade unionist, and a leader of the left. He was an inspiration to many, and most of all a good comrade."
