FIREFIGHTERS were called after a mum accidentally locked her 18-month-old baby in the car.

The frantic mother called 999 after she left her keys on the front seat of the vehicle before the doors self-locked.

Crews from Peterlee Fire Station attended the scene at Brougham Court at 11.10am on Saturday.

A spokesman for the station said: “We had to smash one of the windows and then use a hooked device to get the keys before opening the door.

“Fortunately the baby slept through the whole thing.”
