Two Dragons, Caan and Duncan Bannatyne, fought to invest in the Malvern-based Planit Products business during last Monday's BBC2 show.

One of Planit's products is the H2Go Barrow Bag, which can be fitted into a wheelbarrow to allow 80 litres of water to be transported and poured through a fitted spout.

It will be launched at Glee on 20-23 September at Birmingham's NEC (Hall 5, stand E11).

The bag will be on sale from November, retailing at £9.99.
