A spokesperson from Humberside Police said: "Though the weather may be getting cooler, a vehicle can be like a green house.

"Thankfully this dog was okay but we would like to remind the public that dogs must not be left in vehicles or owners may be prosecuted."

It was reported that a sign 'warning that dogs should not be left in vehicles' was displayed five metres away from the car.
