A student from Bedford has filed a patent for a new type of boat mooring at the age of just 17. Andrew Knight who goes to Bedford Modern School came up with the idea after seeing a gap in the market while boating.

Tide Safe is a low cost mooring which responds to tidal movements and could be used at harbours which don't have pontoons.
