On camera: Google Street View's UK snapshot
Updated on 11 March 2010
Google extends its Street View images to cover an estimated 95 per cent of the UK's roads, with the search engine's cameras catching some famous and quirky sights.
The search engine said its popular, but controversial Street View service now showed images from an extra 210,000 miles of roads across the country.
The 360 degree images were snapped by specially fitted cars with cameras on the roof.
Web users can now travel from Land's End in Cornwall to John O'Groats in Caithness at a click of a mouse.
The Street View service has proved controversial with privacy campaigners since its introduction in the UK in March 2009, when images from major towns and cities were first published. Google says its technology blurs car number plates and people's faces, and web users can ask for a particular image to be removed.
Already the hunt has been on the social network site Twitter to find funny and unusual images.
Pub regulars in Brighton were snapped doing a Mexican wave.
