Google pulls some street images
Image removed by Google
Google has removed dozens of photos from its new UK Street View service.
The street-mapping facility launched amid a fanfare of publicity but now the firm has been forced to pull some of the images after complaints.
It is thought the pictures removed contained revealing images of homes, a man entering a London sex shop, people being arrested and a man being sick.
A spokesperson for Google told the BBC that anyone could have their images removed if they asked.
"We've got millions of images, so the percentage removed was very small," Google's Laura Scott told the BBC.
Google have replaced offending images with a black screen
"We want this to be a useful tool and it's people's right to have their image removed.
"The fact there are now gaps [in Street View] shows how responsive we are," she added.
