Four defibrillator training sessions were took place at Feniton and Tipton St John primary schools.

Nearly 100 people were trained how to use defibrillators at two East Devon schools.

The four training sessions were carried out by Sarah Dormor from the Plymouth Hospitals NHS Trust at Feniton and Tipton St John primary schools.

Pupils and teachers, as well as villagers, were taught how to use the machines, which delivers a dose of electric current to the heart.

Naomi Garrick a teacher at Tipton Primary School, said: “I thought the defibrillator training was not just very informative but really interesting.

“I came away thinking how important it is to have one in the village as the chance of survival is so much higher.

“I felt really relaxed having a go and very pleased that I learnt about what to do. I just hope that I never have to use it but if I do, I will have the knowledge of what to do.”
