LIFESAVING equipment has been installed across Worsbrough in a move local councillors hope will make the streets safer for all.

Four defibrillators have been installed in key areas including Maltas Court Sheltered Housing, Elm Court Housing, Worsbrough Village and Worsbrough Miners’ Welfare.

A fifth is due to be set up at Worsbrough Mill in the coming months.

Coun John Clarke said: “We have carefully chosen the areas for the defibrillators so that if an emergency does happen, help can be administered quickly.

“The old people’s homes were our first choices, and then we expanded to include the centre of the village and the miner’s welfare which get a lot of people passing through.

“They were paid for by the Worsbrough Ward Alliance and I am hopeful that they can save lives.”
