Online grocery retailer Ocado has unveiled a major push into autonomous driving technology.

It has teamed up with another British company, Oxbotica, to build self-driving vehicles for itself and others who use its platform.

That could include automatic forklift trucks at warehouses, self-driving delivery vans, or even "kerb to kitchen" robots for the final leg.

As part of the deal, Ocado has bought a £10m stake in Oxbotica.
