fantastic picture quality - I notice all car registration numbers are blanked out.

I saw one of the cars, several times in a half hour a couple of months ago, while I was walking around Cambridge. Cameras pointing all over the shop, and a huge monitor on the passenger seat showing the pictures. Driver seemed more interested in his monitor than the pedestrians & cyclists. Now I think back, I think it was a left-hand drive car, so maybe they've done mainland Europe already...

I also saw one on a tiny back street of Bury St Edmunds, so I guess they are spreading rurally as they go!

I guess I'd better trawl round Cambridge on Google Maps to check they've deleted my ugly mug!

(I note my old house in Cambridge looks MUCH smarter... new front door... can see straight in the windows, too... I'm surprised windows aren't blacked out in some way.)

There have been quite a few funny incidents captured in the snapshot that is Google Street View.

If you find any in your journeys around Street View, please send us the links or post the details here.

We'll gather the best ones (with credits, of course) into an online feature.

How do you get to see it?

Go to Google Maps.

Type one of the cities in the search bar,zoom in a little closer until you find a street you want to visit.

There is a little orange pin on the top right of your screen (where the zoom in and out buttons are).

Drag it and drop it onto your choice of street.
