A mother and father in Suffolk have thanked the fire service for rescuing their baby that was accidentally locked in their car.

Sian and Shane Stocker’s seven-month-old son Jake was locked in their Ford Mondeo in Ann Street, Ipswich, on Wednesday night.

Following a quick call to the fire service, firefighters rescued Jake in less than 15 minutes.

Mrs Stocker said: “We want to thank them for getting here so quickly. Because nothing was burning we thought they might take time to get here.

“Thank-you for getting Jake out so soon.”
