David and Teresa Stevens invent ship pirate barrier

A couple from Hampshire have invented a device to reduce piracy on ships.

David and Teresa Stevens designed the low-tech plastic barrier which fits over a ship's rails.

It aims to stop pirates hijacking ships by preventing them from getting onboard.

The device has already been fitted to more than 100 vessels.
