The fire service were called to a home in Teignmouth late last night.

A fire engine was mobilised from Teignmouth following a call from a neighbour of a distressed mother who had accidentally locked herself out of her property in Yannon Drive, leaving her 6 yr old child asleep inside.

Shortly after arriving the crew gained access to the property via a first floor window, using a ladder and small tools, and confirmed that the child was unharmed/not in distress.

Duty of care was left with the mother.
