Two dogs trapped in a boiling car had to be rescued by police after being left ‘for hours’ in a car park near a Cornwall beach. It is understood officers had to smash a window to save the dogs from the sweltering vehicle, which had parked up near Looe Beach on Saturday.

A local man, who shared an image of the scene on social media, said the dogs had been left in the car unattended for ‘over two hours’.

Kieran Mccrash Mclelland said the police were already at the scene when he noticed the dogs in the car as temperatures reached 27C in the town.

It is understood concerned members of the public spotted the pets trapped in the vehicle and alerted the authorities to save them.

The social media post left hundreds outraged, with many calling for the RSPCA to investigate the incident. Others said they would have smashed the windows in themselves. Last weekend, three dogs had to be saved from cars parked in the baking heat in Lincolnshire and the Isle of Wight.

Police on the Isle of Wight said the two dogs they rescued were okay after they managed to call the owners back from a theme park and open the boot. They described the incident as a ‘regular summer call’.

Feed him properly. Ask your vet what type of food and how much is right for you pet. Keeping your pet on a regular, portion controlled diet will help with weight management and prevent weight related health problems.

A woman who saw a labrador being saved from a car with the windows closed in a shopping centre car park called the owners ‘reprobates’.
