An overheated hound was freed from a car on the hottest day of the year after police smashed the vehicle’s window.
Officers were called to the Woodberry Down Estate, in Finsbury Park, on Friday - when temperatures hit 32C - after the dog had been seen skulking in the car’s footwell.
Sergeant Richard Berns, from the Brownswood team, said: “This dog was left in this car on the hottest day of the year with no water or ventilation. It has both now.
“That’s why I smashed the rear window, away from the dog, and the owner will pay for the damage. Not the taxpayer.”
The dog is thought to be doing well.
