YOUNG children are being left in cars for long periods of time in the warm weather, resulting in more calls to the ambulance service.

South Central Ambulance Service wants to make the public aware of the dangers associated with leaving a child or pet in a car even if for a very short time.

Tony Heselton, paramedic and safeguarding lead, said: ‘Please never leave your children or pets in the car at any time. Even short periods of time with the windows open slightly can cause the temperature in your car to rise.’
