i was browsing google maps on street view in aus and then i found out they have street view on google maps uk and most of the major cities are covered including Liverpool and the wirral is hardly on it only the new ferry bypass and the kingsway tunnel approach are on the wirral side and that is about it for the wirral. i think it is the first release for england and they plan 2 do more.

They are supposed to have all faces and number plates blurred out in UK zone. This is done with recognition software, which doesn't always work.

On Campbeltown Road by Cammel Lairds, there is a fork lift truck driver just about to come out the depot whose face isn't blurred (been reported so will be done soon) also the sign to the left of the depot has blur marks where it thinks its a number plate.

I just read about Street View in a online newspaper and went off all excited to have a look at Wallasey. How boring is it that the only view close to my home is the Kingsway Tunnel Approach. Severely disappointed frown

nay matter a few more months and you'll be able to check if your dad/boyfriend/mum/girlfriend was in that day the car went past but he/she said he/she was out at the shops.
