The defibrillator was unveiled at the weekend by the Gyllyngvase Surf Life Saving Club (SLSC).The club had spent the winter months raising money and working with local businesses to raise the money needed to buy it.

It is located on the outside of the club’s store at Gyllyngvase Beach.

Matthew Stone, chairman of Gyllyngvase SLSC, said: “The club has been looking into purchasing an AED (automated external defibrillator) for a while to add to our first response kit.
