FIREFIGHTERS have been at the scene of a dramatic car fire in Dorset today.

Earlier today a fire crew from Dorchester was mobilised to a car fire near Broadmayne. The car was extinguished by two breathing apparatus wearers who used a hose reel jet. 

Soon afterwards, the crew was called to another incident, after a child had become locked inside a car in Dorchester.

A spokesman for the fire service said: "Crews gained access to the car without damage and reunited the child to the parents."
