A bulletproof backpackof Massachusetts company that can be used to protect against 97% of the bullets used, is being sold to parents in the US to protect their children from guns. Tests showed the $175 (£88) pack could also resist knives.

Creators Joe Currant and Mike Pelonzi, who are both parents, said the idea for My Child's Pack was born out of the need to keep their kids safe in school. The duo hope that it will help prevent tragedies like the Columbine school massacre of 1999.

The backpack has the same certification as a police vest but weighs less than a twentieth of it, said Mr Curran. The 20oz pack contains a ballistic panel able to stop even rifle bullets, according the company MJ Safety Solutions.
