Published on 6th September 2016

More than 3,000 red phone boxes have been ‘adopted’ to house life-saving defibrillators around the UK.

Community Heartbeat Trust installs defibrillators to phone boxes that have been adopted by communities to reuse rather than remove the iconic ‘London Style’ kiosks.

As seen as recently as on BBC’s accidental time travelling sitcom Goodnight Sweetheart where Nicholas Lyndhurst returns to the future, but 17 years later than he was last here.

A recent phone box that was been adopted was by BT themselves at Loweswater, Cumbria was the 3,000th adopted kiosk in the UK.
