Google removes UK street view images

In Britain, the software giant Google says it has removed several images from its Street View application after launching it just 24 hours earlier.

Street View allows people to see 360-degree ground-level images of cities that are captured from a car equipped with a camera.

A Google spokeswoman confirmed that only hours after launching it in the UK, images depicting a man vomiting outside a London pub and another man leaving a sex shop were removed from the site.

The company says it protects privacy by blurring faces and number plates.
