A Londoner has been nominated for the £10,000 James Dyson Award after designing a new type of folding bicycle.

Dominic Hargreaves, 24, from Wandsworth, developed the Contortionist, a commuter bike that folds into the circumference of its wheels and can be pulled along by its handlebars.

The Royal College of Art graduate said, “The wheels still rotate when it's folded, so you can pull it on a bus or train, and store it easily at home.”

He hopes the product will be on sale next year for about £400.
