A DEFIBRILLATOR was damaged and its contents scattered on the ground in a “vile act”.

An active investigation is underway by the police, with several avenues of investigation underway.

The incident is believed to have taken place around 7:35 p.m. Friday evening (September 30).

A police spokesperson said: “It is a despicable act, one that could put lives in danger, and we need anyone who can help us contact us.”
