Tech News
Trawling around Tescos isn't the most entertaining of chores, but it's made even worse when the item you braved the busy aisles for isn't even in stock!

Whilst Sophie seemed pretty pro at controlling the multi-tonne monster, she did get temporarily distracted by a filming drone and manage to roll the vehicle into a pit. Obviously, the entire experiment was created as a PR stunt for the company, but not only did Volvo manage to make one four…
