FIREFIGHTERS rescued a baby from a car after it was accidentally locked inside.

Crews from Southsea fire station were called to help the child’s mother outside Horatio House, in Meriden Road, Southsea, yesterday at 9am.

She had put the baby into the car and left her keys on the driver’s seat, while tending to another child, when the silver car automatically locked.

Firefighters used tools to bend the door, while a mechanic put a metal tool in and touched the unlock button. The baby, believed to be two months old, slept throughout the incident and was freed by 9.30am
