A Sheffield entrepreneur has invented a bicycle-powered washing machine which he hopes could be used in countries with little or no electricity.

Richard Hewitt, a former design student, said he was inspired to create the SpinCycle after a recent trip to Burundi in Africa.

Mr Hewitt said he now planned to set up a company to build the bike in developing countries.

A news video about the SpinCycle can be found on BBC News.
