Taunton hospital tests flashing cup

A hospital is testing flashing cups that prompt patients to drink more fluids.

The cups, which are being used at Musgrove Park Hospital in Taunton, were designed by university student Ellie van Leeuwen.

She came up with the concept as part of her final design project, after her grandmother became dehydrated while in hospital following a hip operation.
