  Pie-lovers helped by new invention
Updated 15 June 2003, 14.38
The pie holder
A girl has invented a pie holder to help out footie fans.

The plastic container is supposed to stop pie-lovers burning their fingers while they chomp their pies at sports matches.

Student Jane Aukim said she came up with the pie-in-the-sky plan when she was at a football match.

'Drip gravy'

"I was at a Wolves game and saw this man drip gravy on a little girl's head because he was struggling to hold it due to the heat," Jane said.

Jane's also invented a collapsible sandwich box
So she invented a container which you can pop your pie into and save any embarrassing moments.

She's also designed a collapsible sandwich box ,and a coffee and doughnut holder.

Jane's a design student at Coventry University, and her work is on display at an exhibition there.

She hopes to sell her idea so it'll be used at sports events everywhere.
