A charitable organisation in the borough has donated a life-saving machine that has the potential to save hundreds of lives.

The Rotary Club of Whitley Bay presented a defibrillator to the town’s street pastors to be carried in their van that operates around Whitley Bay supporting people who have over-indulged while on a night out.

Rotarian Richard Hart said: “Anybody who has a sudden cardiac arrest has less than five per cent chance of survival, but with the use of a cardiac defibrillator this percentage increases to more than 75 per cent.

“Now that the defibrillator has been installed in the van, we can be sure that the streets of Whitley Bay are safer and healthier.”
