Police save dogs from hot cars in Bath
Our police have had to smash the windows of two cars in Bath, because the owners had left their dogs inside during the baking heat.
Officers had to break in to rescue the distressed pets over the weekend.
They are now reminding owners who endanger their animals by leaving them locked inside a car could be prosecuted.
Dogs can die from heatstroke in a car in as little as 20 minutes.
Even on cloudy days, with outside tempeatures of 22°C, temperatures inside can quickly reach 47°C.
Officers also say that leaving the car windows open or putting a bowl of water inside will not help.
