Two dogs were left in a car for over two hours during scorching 35C temperatures across Britain yesterday.
Police were called after residents noticed the pair in a locked car park near Looe beach in Cornwall.
A man, who shared the awful event on social media, said the dogs had been in the car for over two hours and alleged no-one had returned to the vehicle to check on them.
Kieran Mccrash Mclelland said police were at the scene when he noticed the dogs in the car.
He said officers smashed a window to get the dogs out of the parked vehicle.
The dogs were given water and are believed to be okay.
Animal charities urged people to pay attention over the weekend as warm weather presents a serious danger to pets.
