A REVOLUTIONARY repair kit for water damaged mobiles created by a Danbury youngster has received Dragons' Den funding.

Oliver Murphy appeared on the BBC show on Sunday night with his Repairaphone device which fixes phones which have been dropped in water.

His pitch impressed entrepreneur Kelly Hoppen so much she made an offer to the 20-year-old former Felsted School student for £50,000 and 25 per cent of the business, which he accepted.

Speaking after the getting the investment, Oliver said: "I’m made-up that Kelly has invested in me.

“I know she’s a very creative person and has worked with other young entrepreneurs through the Prince’s Trust so I was really hoping she’d see the potential returns for a product like Reviveaphone."
