A village now has its own defibrillator to help save the lives of local people and to honour the memory of a father-of-two who died tragically.

A joint venture between Full Sutton Parish Council, Full Sutton Fitness Centre, Yorkshire Ambulance Service and HMP Full Sutton has provided a new Community Public Access Defibrillator in Full Sutton.

It comes more than five years after the death of Full Sutton resident Ryan Taylor, who had a cardiac arrest at his home in January 2009.

999 was called which lead to the arrival, some minutes later, of the ambulance and a community responder who, at the time, was based in Stamford Bridge three miles away. However, they were not able to save Ryan and he died, aged just 42.

Full story in next week’s (4 September) Pocklington Post.
