A DEFIBRILLATOR has been stolen from inside an old red phone box in Bromsgrove.

The phone box is situated on Old Birmingham Road in Marlbrook.

A spokesman for West Mercia Police said: "This is a callous theft of an important life saving piece of equipment which could save lives."

Anyone with information on the theft is urged to call officers on 101, quoting crime number 559s.
