Adrenaline should only be given by a medical professional and if it is taken by a person with a normal heart rate, death can occur without medical intervention.


Anyone who has seen the equipment discarded in the Oakham area or has information regarding the theft is asked to call 101, quoting incident 396 of 22 March.
