FIREFIGHTERS used a coat hanger to successfully free a toddler trapped in a hot car.

Crews from Wigan were called to Kilhey Court Hotel, in Standish, by a frantic woman after her car locked automatically with the keys inside at around 11.30am on Thursday.

Firefighters used a coat hanger supplied by the hotel to push through the back door and hook the keys to open the door.

The two year-old had been in the car for around half an hour and was unharmed.
