A robot named Promobot reportedly escaped from a science laboratory in Russia Thursday causing a traffic jam in the city of Perm. Eyewitness video of the incident posted to YouTube shows the robot, which reportedly escaped after an engineer accidentally left a gate open, rolling into the middle of a busy street and stalling there while a traffic policeman stands by and guards it. The robot is then wheeled off by what appears to be an engineer. We take a look at the footage of the runaway robot on the Lip News with Nik Zecevic, Jo Ankier and Margaret Howell.
