A new scheme to deliver groceries by robot has been hit by a glitch, with a video emerging of one 'lost' robot getting stuck at a kerb.

The robots have become a familiar site in suburban Sale after the scheme was launched on Wednesday by Co-op in conjunction with Trafford Council and robot manufacturer Starship.

But the scheme has been hit by teething problem. Video has emerged of one of the robots appearing to get 'lost' and then becoming stuck as it tried to negotiate a high kerb on Friday night.
