Google is planning to make drone deliveries in Europe next year.

Alphabet is Google's parent company and it announced today that it will test a drone delivery service in Finland next year.

The delivery service is called Wing, and it has already been tested in Australia.

Helsinki will be the first European location where they will test Wing.

The drone will deliver packages weighing up to 1.5kg within minutes of a customer placing an order.

Wing has made 55,000 journeys in south-eastern Australia, delivering items such as medicine, coffee and household goods.

The reason Alphabet chose Finland, it said, was because Finnish people are "renowned for being early-adopters of new technologies".

Customers in Helsinki will be able to place an order using an app and the drone delivery will be offered free of charge during the trial period.
