An eight foot robot causes terror in Chelmsford - but then mellows into the festival spirit...

An eight foot robot has caused havoc backstage at the V FESTIVAL!

As our exclusive picture shows, the robot evaded security guards and ran through the backstage area in Chelmsford today (August 22), causing VIPs to flee in all directions.

However, once it became used to its surroundings the robot mellowed into the festival spirit, chatting with music fans, and treating them to a note perfect version of Louis Armstrong’s ’What A Wonderful World’.

One terrified festival goer told NME.COM: “I didn’t like it to begin with because he’s twice my size, but by singing this song he showed he had a heart in there somewhere!”

The robot was last seen travelling away from the backstage area in a golf buggy.
