Bedrooms, kitchen...and robot!

MOVING house can be a messy business - but one builder has come up with a novel idea to clean-up in the market.

Airevale Homes are giving away a mini robot to anyone who reserves one of the few remaining four-bedroom townhouses at the Upperreach development in Newlay.

The Roomba is a vacuum cleaner which can work its way round the carpet, avoiding obstacles as it goes.

It uses an infrared bumper so it can go slower when the device senses it is about to run into something or someone.

The nifty little contraption normally sells at between 200–400.

Our picture shows the Roomba in action at one of the properties.
