Police in Cookstown have said they will be keeping an eye for any children or pets left in cars during the hot weather.

In a statement posted on their Facebook page, the PSNI said hot cars were a real hazard.

“It’s getting hotter out there. Perhaps a good opportunity for a timely reminder.

“As the temperatures rise, don’t leave small children or, indeed dogs, locked in parked vehicles without adequate ventilation, there is a danger that without adequate ventilation, small children or animals locked in a car on a hot day, could suffer as a consequence.

“Police will use discretion when responding to such an incident and assess the individual circumstances, however we would like to remind motorists of the obvious dangers.
