A police community support officer has been praised by a father after he dramatically stopped a car, with a baby girl inside, from rolling down a hill in St Agnes.

PCSO Richard Hill was parked nearby when he saw what he thought was an empty convertible car rolling backwards down the slipway towards the beach at Trevaunance Cove.

He saw a man frantically trying to stop the Audi A3 from rolling but the car was gathering pace, heading towards a number of pedestrians who would not have had chance to avoid the car.
