A woman from Rugby who knits from recycled materials has been asked by American space agency NASA to make an outfit for their rubber chicken mascot, Camilla.

Sue Drage initially thought it was a hoax, but after a call from NASA she realised her designs could be sent into space.

Sue knits using different material and will be making Camilla's spacesuit out of recycled carrier bags.

NASA uses Camilla as part of their educational programme and say they're delighted that Sue has agreed to create a suit for Camilla.

NASA now hope it will give the project an international appeal.
