Despite the rise of robot work forces, club owner Laurent Roue said the new members of staff will not replace the 10 human dancers who currently perform there, instead saying it was a way of honouring the technology.

Newly engaged Britons 'held in French jail after migrant found in car'.
A newly engaged British couple holidaying in France claim they were held in a police cell for two days after being wrongly accused of trying to smuggle a migrant in the boot of their car. Sam Hemingway, 23, and Jordan Valentine, 20, were returning from their engagement trip in June when police at the ferry port in Calais found the migrant, thought to be a 16-year-old Iranian. The couple say they did not know the teenager was stowed away in their car and were "just as shocked" as the police to find him. They claim they were held in separate cells without any food or access to a lawyer.
