Life-saving device acquired for Marston Green

A LIFE-saving device is being placed in the centre of Marston Green.
The defibrillator - which can help revive those who have suffered a cardiac arrest - will be located in the vicinity of the village railway station.
The scheme is a partnership between Marston Green & District Lions and the One Stop store in Station Road.
Defibrillators can allow civilians to administer vital first aid before paramedics arrive on the scene and increasingly have been installed in public places around the country.
If used in the first five minutes of someone suffering a heart attack, St John Ambulance suggest that survival rates can increase by 70 per cent.
However, a report this week warned that a spate of thefts - which have seen devices stolen from communities around the UK - could be putting lives at risks.
