AN ISLAND community in Essex has received a defibrillator as part of the Every Minute Counts campaign.

The campaign, funded by the East of England Co-operative Society, aims to install 100 defibrillators in rural and hard-to-reach locations across Suffolk, Norfolk and Essex.

The latest unit has been placed on a wall mounting outside the Co-op store in West Mersea, on Mersea Island to provide round-the-clock access to the potentially life-saving equipment in the event of a cardiac arrest.
