On average a child will grow through seven sizes in their first two years, costing around £2,000 before they even reach three.

Concerned about not only the cost burden this was placing on parents, but also the huge amount of waste this generates, 24-year-old Ryan Yasin decided to do something about it.

The recent graduate from the Royal College of Art and Imperial College London set to work on creating a garment that could actually grow along with a small child.

Parents fear 'huge loss of life' over breaches of school building standards

  Parents fear 'huge loss of life' over breaches of school building standards Parents and local representatives have expressed their anger over fire safety concerns in schools, which they believe risks a "huge loss of life".Safety fears were raised for thousands of school children after the Department of Education announced it would carry out fire audits at more than two dozen schools around the country built over the past 20 years.

Most children grow by seven sizes in their first two years, and (according to a recent survey by Aviva ) parents spend an average of £2,000 on clothing before their child reaches the Ryan Yasin, designer of Petit Pli clothing range that grow with your child .

The result was Petit Pli, a set of clothing that’s not only waterproof but when it’s not being worn can even be kept in a parent’s pocket.

Petit Pli employs something known as the Negative Poisson’s ratio. Put simply, when stretched, materials that have this ratio - called auxetics - become thicker perpendicular to the applied force.

Yasin had his lightbulb moment while studying aeronautical engineering at Imperial College having previously been working on satellite design and construction.

Through heat treatments applied to the fabric Yasin was able to give the garments auxetic properties effectively allowing them to expand and grow to many times its original size.

By winning the UK James Dyson Awards Yasin will get £2,000 as well as moving him onto the international round of the competition.

James Dyson himself will now look at the finalists from around the world and pick an international winner who will win £30,000.

Last year the international winner was Isis Shiffer who created a recyclable, waterproof bicycle helmet that costs just £5 and can fold completely flat.

Shiffer hopes that the cheap, reusable helmet can be offered alongside cycle sharing schemes in an effort to combat the rising accidents that take place with cyclists in some of the world’s busiest urban hotspots.

The James Dyson Awards were set up by the James Dyson Foundation as a way of recognising the incredible ideas that young students can come up with.

  New site in Tuam to be excavated for 'unmarked children's graves' - reports A site in the Galway town of Tuam is to be excavated to find out if an unmarked children's grave is on the site, according to reports. A ground-penetrating scan, similar to the one carried out on the town's mother and baby home, is due to be carried out on the grounds of the former religious-run Grove Hospital in the town.The HSE bought the former site, previously owned by the Bon Secours nuns, in 2001 and last year they sought permission to develop a mental health facility here.

Clothes that grow with your child have won the UK 's annual James Dyson prize for innovation. The prototype garments fit children aged between six months and

Established in 2007, the James Dyson Award is an international student design competition with a brief to create something that solves a problem. Yasin will receive £2,000 for winning the UK round of the competition. The international winner , who will receive £30,00, will be announced on October 26.

The award encourages ideas that think outside of the box and in many ways capture the ethos of ‘function over form’.

James Dyson Awards Past Winners

2016 - EcoHelmet

The ingenious EcoHelmet is an ultra-strong, recyclable cycling helmet that's waterproof for three hours and folds completely flat thanks to its honeycomb design.

Its designer Isis Shiffer created the helmet after using bike-sharing schemes around the world and realising that there was no easy, cheap access to safety equipment.

According to the Department of Transport, there were more than 3,200 serious injuries to cyclists on the roads in 2015.Ms Shiffer’s hope is to sell them alongside the bike sharing stations - like those found in London - for around £4 per helmet.

2015 - Voltera

While the 3D printer has evolved at an astonishing pace, another form of rapid printing has sadly been left behind. This technology is the process of creating Printed Circuit Boards (PCB). They're used in everything from smartphones to medical devices and yet for engineers, inventors and students it takes an agonising amount of time to create them.

  Childminder 'appeared to be biting face of 18-month-old', court told A childminder seemed to be “biting” the face of an 18-month old child when a postwoman doing rounds called in a rural area outside Killarney, a court was told. There were "terrible screams” from the hallway of the house, the court heard.The childminder a  38-year-old woman appeared before Killarney District Court on Tuesday where she pleaded guilty under Section 246  (1) and (2) of the Children Act, 2001 that she wilfully assaulted a child in her care in a manner likely to cause injury to the child’s health or seriously affect its well being.The woman had been looking after the child with over a year, the court was told.

" Children outgrow their clothes in a matter of a few months, yet we clothe them in miniaturised adult clothing , as opposed to designing them from the "With 11 million children in the UK , I thought it was time we redesigned children 's garments."

The James Dyson Award honors some of the most creative creations made by college students and recent graduates in design and engineering. But perhaps the winner drawing the most attention is the national winner from the United Kingdom , a line of clothing that actually grows with your child .

Considering the shortage of engineers in the UK (and the world), having a hurdle like this is unacceptable and it's something that four students from the University of Waterloo, Canada set to overcome.

Voltera is the result of that. It's a laptop-sized PCB printer that can turn design files into prototype printed circuit boards in just minutes. No more delays, no more unnecessary costs, now an inventor can create a circuit on their laptop and have it printed and ready to go within the hour.

2014 - MOM

Created by James Roberts, a 23 year old graduate from Loughborough University, the MOM is a low-cost incubator that can be deployed anywhere and can run for up to 24 hours on just battery power alone.

Roberts’ design is a response to shocking statistics from the WHO that 75 per cent of deaths resulting from premature birth could be avoided if inexpensive treatments were more readily available in the developing world.

Modern incubators can cost upwards of £30,000 making them hugely expensive to both buy, and then distribute. Roberts’ new design costs just £250 and is fully portable.

2013 - Titan Arm

Created by a team of mechanical engineering students from the University of Pennsylvania, Titan Arm is a robotic arm that can instantly increase human strength. Seeing the number of injuries that are caused by manual labour every single year, the team decided to develop a simple, cheap exoskeleton that could help rehabilitate people with back injuries. It can also work as a supplementary device for workers, helping them lift heavy loads without putting the inevitable strain on their upper body or back. What's really impressive about Titan Arm is that it costs just $2,000 to produce, a major reduction compared to similar exoskeletons that can cost $100,000 and upwards.

2012 - SafetyNet

Royal College of Art student Dan Watson created SafetyNet as a means of protecting young and endangered fish from fishing trawlers. It's a beautifully simple concept: The net contains a series of escape holes that are lit up allowing smaller fish to pass safely through the trawler's haul. Watson created his net after discovering the staggering numbers of unmarketable fish that are caught and then thrown back into the sea dead each year.

2011 - Airdrop

Edward Linacre from Swinburne University of Technology in Australia created Aidrop after seeing the Murray Darling area of the country get hit by its worst drought in a century. his research found that crops were failing because of soil evaporation, to combat this he created a device that would capture that lost water and put it back into the soil. Airdrop works by taking in air and then running it through a series of underground pipes until it reaches the point of condensation. The water is then pumped directly to the root of the plants.

2010 - Longreach Buoyancy Deployment System

Created by Samuel Adeloju the Longreach Buoyancy Deployment System might look like some form of weapon but what it's actually firing is a life-saving buoyancy aid.The package that's fired uses hydrophobic or rapidly expanding foam to provide buoyancy and contains a light for attracting attention. In addition to being able to launch buoyancy aids it contains two veritcally launched Para-Flares for nightime illumination.

2009 - Automotist

Automotist is a revolutionary sprinkler system that can be attached to any standard kitchen tap. Created by London product design graduates Yusuf Muhammad and Paul Thomas this little device can fill a room with a fine mist using the same water system that's connected to your tap. A tiny sensor built into the device detects a fire and then a motorised pump pushes mains water through the misting nozzles.

2008 - Reactiv

Reactiv won the JDA back in 2008 and was the brainchild of product design student Michael Chen. It is essentially a 'smart' cycling jacket that uses a series of sensors to help activate LED strips along the jacket. When you brake the LEDs turn red, alerting drivers around you. Raising your arm left or right will activate an indicator strip.

2007 - Senjo
