Police rescue baby from hot locked car as mother shops

A six-month-old baby was rescued by police officers in Swansea after she was left locked in a hot parked car.

Officers smashed the car window to reach the girl at Morfa Retail Park at about 13:30 BST on Thursday, as her mother shopped nearby.

The baby was taken to the city's Morriston Hospital in an ambulance as a precaution, where she was found to be unharmed.

South Wales Police say they are continuing to investigate the incident.
