Hampshire Constabulary received a 999 call earlier this afternoon (Saturday) following concerns for a number of dogs that were left in a hot vehicle.
A concerned member of the public made the call after spotting the animals left in a 4×4 at Blackgang Chine.
Police made their way to the car park where they located the vehicle in question.
Thankfully, for all involved, the dogs were fine and were attended to before the vehicle had a chance to heat up in the summer heat.
A spokesperson for Isle of Wight Police is urging dog owners to not leave dogs in your car:
“It’s a regular call we get in the summer.
“The dogs were fine but cars heat up very quickly in sunny weather.
“Please avoid leaving your dogs in your car if at all possible.”
