The Wiltshire inventor Dr Alex Moulton has died at the age of 92. He's perhaps best known for the Moulton bicycle, the small-wheeled bike recognised as a design classic. The hand-built bikes are still made at the Moulton factory in Bradford-on-Avon.

Dr Moulton was also renowned for the Hydrolastic suspension system he developed for the Mini.
