A Kerry County Councillor has called on the local authority to wholeheartedly support new legislation on Life Saving Equipment Bill.

Fianna Fail’s Norma Foley said the legislation is currently being drafted and if enacted would introduce a new offence of interfering with life saving devices.

Cllr Foley said those found guilty of such a charge would face a significant penalty.
