The Green Cross Code droid that was used in the series of TV road safety adverts starring Darth Vader actor David Prowse has emerged for sale 40 years later.<br />
<br />
The green and white robot was given as a gift to the late British actor after filming for the public service videos was completed in the early 1980s.<br />
<br />
Mr Prowse, who starred as the Green Cross Code Man, kept the R2D2-like machine in his garden shed where it was left to languish for the next three decades.
