TEENAGERS have stolen a £900 defibrillator from St Mark’s C.E. Primary School in Talbot Rise, Talbot Village. 

The incident, which happened at 8pm on Friday, May 27, saw a group of teenagers reportedly taking an orange defibrillator from the car park of the school 

Police constable Georgia Kemp, of Bournemouth police, said: “Not only did this defibrillator cost over £900, but it has been bought and placed in a community car park so it can be used to save people’s lives. 

“This theft was utterly unnecessary and reckless, and I would like to reassure the community that a full investigation is underway.  

“I would urge anyone with information as to who was responsible to please contact Dorset Police.”
