Defibrilla­tor vandalised after near-death at Euro


A 17-year-old boy has been arrested after two people were caught on CCTV vandalisin­g a defibrilla­tor kit at a football club.

Buxted FC said the incident, in the early hours of Sunday, was “heartbreak­ing”. It came just hours after Christian Eriksen, the Danish footballer, suffered a cardiac arrest during his side’s Euro game on Saturday. The player was resuscitat­ed by “defib”.

Richard Turner, chairman of the East Sussex club, said: “Those things save people’s lives and someone has come and trashed it. We work hard for what we’ve got, but now we’ll have to raise funds to replace it.”
