|A single mother in Northern Ireland has invented a new type of cot and has just had it patented by Invest NI, reports the Derry Journal.
Jacqueline McKay, 24, said the adjustable cot was designed for babies aged up to three months.
Now that the design is patented she can begin to market her invention to local businesses, with a view to developing it into a viable product.
Ms McKay said that she got inspiration for the cot from her own experience of giving birth and bringing up her two sons as a single mother.
