A defibrillator has been installed at Moreton Hall Community Centre in Symonds Road, Bury St Edmunds.

It is inside for now, so only accessible during centre hours, but there are plans to mount it outside in future to ensure it is available 24 hours a day.

Cllr Peter Thompson, who sourced the device from the British Heart Foundation, said it was a important issue for him, with his grandfather having died from a heart attack and his father also having suffered with heart problems.

“It runs in my family so it’s a subject close to my heart,” he said.
