Google Street View UK - the real UK

So, big news today (or maybe yesterday) was the release of StreetView data for the UK. Of course, having all of those special cameras drive up and down high streets across the country mean that foreigners now get a real view of what actually happens on the streets of England. As can be seen from the photo, it normally involves a post-drinking binge puke in the middle of the pavement/sidewalk, something covered in very few brochures that I'm aware of. At least we were spared the pissing in the doorway on the way home (so far anyway).

Update - looks to me like Google is spoiling our fun, and took the image down. That's so not fair....

Update2 - however, you can just move a little further down the street and look back for the side view of the image 8-) Did I tell you I love technology?
