Leeds man invents a dog-controlled washing machine

A Leeds man has invented a washing machine that can be controlled by an assistance dog to help disabled people.

The Woof to Wash device has a voice-activated switch which turns the washer on when the dog barks.

It also has a special "paw" button which allows the dog to open and close the machine's door.
