North Wales news and information

A defibrillator which went missing in Caernarfon has been found following a police appeal. ‌​‌‌​​​‌‍‌​‌​‌​​​

Officers in the north of Gwynedd put out a plea for information last week after the lifesaving device disappeared from Bangor Street in the town. ‌​‌‌​​​‌‍‌​‌​‌​​​

While they did not confirm the circumstances in which the defibrillator was found, the local policing team has now confirmed it has been located and recovered in full working order thanks to information from the public. ‌​‌‌​​​‌‍‌​‌​‌​​​

Sergeant Daniel Dent said: “Thank you to the community for your assistance in recovering the defibrillator so that it can once again be available if needed in an emergency. ‌​‌‌​​​‌‍‌​‌​‌​​​

“Our investigation into it’s disappearance continue but we are happy to report that it will be returned to it’s cabinet again very soon.” ‌​‌‌​​​‌‍‌​‌​‌​​​
