Portishead Lions Club has installed its 27th defibrillator at the Black Horse in Clapton-in-Gordano.

John Miles, who lives in the area, donated £2,500 towards the cost of the purchase and to install the defibrillator.

The club says the equipment's location is 'particularly important' to the community because of the 'remoteness' of the village.

Its members also say the defibrillators will 'give peace of mind' to people living in the area and the Black Horse customers.

Portishead Lions is coming towards the end of its campaign to install defibrillators in the town and the surrounding areas, which it started five and a half years ago.
