More than a dozen children have been rescued after being accidentally locked in cars so far this year, Bucks Fire and Rescue revealed.

The fire service has issued advice for parents asking them to keep their key or fobs with them when they get out of the car, and never leave them inside the vehicles, even for a few seconds.

It comes after a boy who was accidentally locked in a car in the Eden Shopping Centre car park was rescued by firefighters last Thursday at 1.40pm.
