McDonald's franchisee Richard Marcroft installed the new machines on the wall outside of each restaurant and they are available to the public and all emergency services 24 hours a day.

Mr Marcroft said: "I'm delighted that we are able to support our communities with the defibrillators.

"We felt it was important to make this investment in our restaurants to help people if the worst was to happen.

"I'm keen to raise awareness of the defibrillators in the local community, so that people have peace of mind that this valuable technology is close at hand."

All McDonald’s managers are also trained in CPR and how to use a defibrillator.

The importance of CPR training and defibrillators made international headlines last summer when footballer Christian Eriksen collapsed and suffered cardiac arrest during a match at Euro 2020.

In December, Scarborough' s emergency services united to launch an awareness campaign to install more life-saving defibrillators across the region.
