The Bristol businessman behind the Trunki children's pull-along suitcase has lost his legal bid to stop a rival firm marketing an alternative, cheaper version.

Appeal Court judges say the Kiddee case made by a Hong Kong company does not breach Rob Law's design rights. It now effectively opens up the European market to Trunki's discount competitors.

A businessman from Clifton in Bristol whose invention was rejected by TV's Dragon Den is celebrating selling two million of his product.

Rob Law invented the Trunki ride-on suitcase as a way to keep children occupied in airports and it's proved a huge success.

He now turns over £7M a year and employs 30 people.
