Sheffield Hallam students show mettle in design

Students in Sheffield are marking the centenary of a city engineer's discovery of stainless steel, by designing school trophies in the metal.

Their artwork will be made from the metal, created by Sheffield engineer Harry Brearley.

The "Designs of Steel" competition designs will be built by Sheffield Hallam University's metalwork experts.

Metalwork lecturer Jeff Durbar said: "Most people think of stainless steel cutlery, but it's very versatile".
