A key piece of lifesaving equipment has been presented to a local rugby club thanks to the generosity of fundraisers.

Blyth Rugby Club recently received a defibrillator courtesy of the Stephen Carey Fund.

Scott Robinson, a member of the club, suffered a heart attack four years ago while playing for the first team at Gosforth.

Scott, from Blyth, went into cardiac arrest and a defibrillator was used on him in the ambulance on his way to hospital.

“Hopefully it never gets used, but we now have trained staff and the right equipment that if we have a situation like I found myself in then the best care can be provided immediately,” he said.
