Brixham Harbour gets heart defibrillator

A heart defibrillator has been bought for a Devon harbour.

The device has been installed at the security office of Brixham's fish market entrance at the village harbour.

Harbourmaster Paul Labistour said it would be available from the office, which was staffed 24 hours a day, to deal with any medical casualties who had a cardiac arrest.

The £1,500 device has been bought by the Tor Bay Harbour Authority, which also paid for training to use it.
