A 37-year-old woman who invented an inflatable cot is hoping her design will win her a prestigious award.
The cot aims to make travel easier
Jo Bradford, from Telford, Shropshire, came up with the idea as a student at the University of Wolverhampton.
She has since set up company Holi-Doze to sell the cot, which aims to make travelling much easier for parents.
Mrs Bradford is attending the British Female Inventor and Innovator of the Year Awards ceremony on Wednesday.
Mrs Bradford graduated in computer-aided product design in 2003.
The British Female Inventor and Innovator of the Year Awards aim to recognise and promote the success stories of women in the UK who have come through the challenges of turning an idea into reality.
New inventions, including ergonomic cookware, hi-tech holographic fabric and a pushchair that folds into a backpack, are among the other entries.
The winner will be announced on Wednesday evening at The Painted Hall, Old Royal College, in Greenwich, London.
