POLICE are warning dog owners not to leave their pets in hot cars for long periods of time.
Lincolnshire Police issued the warning following an incident elsewhere in the county where officers had to smash a car window to rescue a dog which had been left inside for a few hours.
A window had been left slightly ajar, but police said this was not enough to cool the car and the dog had become dehydrated and extremely distressed.
The matter was reported to the RSPCA.
