Google has announced it has extended its Street View imaging service that sees more than 95% of UK roads covered.

When the service launched last March, street-level images were available for 25 cities, but from today the majority of the UK is now accounted for, with an additional 210,000 miles of UK streets captured by the Google Street View car.

And where the Google car couldn't get, Google sent out it's Street View tricycle, capturing views of pedestrian areas such as Stonehenge and the banks of Loch Ness.

While the 360-degree pictures have snapped their fair share of funny goings on, they have also drawn criticism about privacy and the possibility the service could be exploited by criminals.

You can of course to ask to have your house removed from the service, if this is something you're worried about too.

If you're like us though, you'll be going to check your house out on the extended Street View and see if you can spot any funny goings on on your street. Make sure you let us know below if you do.
