THE South Central Ambulance Service NHS Foundation Trust has warned the public of 
the dangers of leaving children or pets in hot 
cars.

Scas has said that leaving them in the car, even for a short amount of time, is very risky.

It is believed that in a matter of minutes, even with the windows slightly open, the temperature in your car can rise to over 50C.

This can cause heatstroke, dehydration and even death.

It has been warned that young children and pets are susceptible to the effects of extreme temperatures that can also cause heatstroke.
