Fire brigade headquarters in Theale?

I was surprised to hear on Radio Berkshire this evening that the Royal Berkshire Fire service headquarters is to move from Dee Road, Tilehurst, to Theale. I knew of a plan to build a fire station in the Theale/Calcot area, but the brigade headquarters?

I asked a member of the fire authority about this and he told me that the headquarters is likely to move to Pincents Lane, Calcot. He also told me that Theale is the likely location for a new fire station.

Update 23 Feb 2012: The misleading story was aslso published in this week's Reading Chronicle

Update 28 Feb 2012: The new headquarters will be in a building called "Theale Cross", off Pincents Lane
