Tesco to trial drone delivery service

A Tesco drone delivery trial will see small items dropped off at customers' homes within 30 minutes of ordering.

The drones, supplied by Manna, which already runs medicine delivery trials in Ireland, will launch next month. In 2016, retail giant Amazon made its first commercial drone delivery in the UK - from its fulfilment centre in Cambridge to a local resident, within 13 minutes of the order being placed.
