SOCIAL services are investigating after two children were left in a car in Dungannon on a hot day.
It is understood the children were left on their own in the car on Monday last (17th July) in the Oaks Centre car park as temperatures soared to 25 degrees celsius.
Police and paramedics were called to the scene on Monday shortly after 5.30pm after concerns were raised for two children left in the car.
The children are believed to have been trapped in the car for between 20 minutes and half an hour.
Speaking about the incident the PSNI's Sergeant Patton said: "At approximately 5.30pm on Monday, 17th July, Police responded to an incident involving two children in the grounds of a shopping centre in the Dungannon area.
"Subsequently, a referral has been made by Police to a partner agency in relation to a woman who was spoken to by officers at the scene."
A spokesman for the Northern Ireland Ambulance Service said: "We received a call from Police to come and check two children who had been in a car and they were checked over and no-one from the scene was taken to hospital."
