Accessible to public with emergency services' help

Charity Craig's Heartstrong Foundation has installed more lifesaving equipment in Laxey.

A defibrillator and resuscitation pack has been placed outside the Salmon Lake Centre in the village, near the Laxey Wheel.

Just like the dozens of similar kits around the Island, it's designed to be used by members of the public.

It can only be accessed with the assistance of emergency services over the phone.

Paul Healey from Craig's Heartstrong Foundation hopes it will 'ultimately save more lives'.
