Police in Derry are appealing for information following the report of criminal damage to a defibrillator in Drumahoe.

Officers received a report just after 10am on Sunday morning that damage had been caused to a defibrillator, situated on a gate at a play park in the village.

The glass casing had been smashed, with the broken pieces lying on the ground. And while the actual defibrillator remained in place, it was left exposed.

A PSNI Spokesperson said: "This is a vital piece of equipment. It’s there for the benefit of the public, and could mean the difference between life and death for someone.

“In the first instance, I would ask those responsible to think about the consequences of such actions.

“I am also appealing to anyone with information to contact us on 101, quoting reference number 784 of 04/07/21.”
