Firefighters had to smash the window of a car after two dogs became trapped inside.

Cornwall Fire and Rescue Service said the dogs became accidentally locked inside a car at St Buryan, near Penzance, at about 08:20 BST.

The fire service said the crew used breaking-in gear and small tools to smash the rear window of the car.

The dogs - two pointers - were freed once the window was broken.
