A village near Ashbourne has been donated a public access defibrillator for use in an emergency.

The lifesaving machine, donated by Mayfield and Ellastone’s Community First Responder Group, has been installed on the Conygree Lane Memorial Hall wall in Mayfield, and will be registered with West Midlands Ambulance Service.

Anyone calling 999 will be given the code required to remove the kit if someone is in cardiac arrest.

No training is needed to use the machine, which will electronically ‘talk’ the user through the step by step process of administering an electric shock if it detects an abnormal heart rhythm.
