Sports helmet designs win American cash

Welsh engineers and academics have received funding worth more than £160,000 ($240,000) to develop new materials for use in sports helmets - partly funded by American Football's professional league the NFL.

The designers at a Wrexham-based firm and in Cardiff University's School of Engineering hope the material they have come up with could help cut brain injuries in high impact sports.
