Stonehenge pictures added to Google Street View

Coronation Street & Angel of the North also available

Stonehenge can now been seen on Google's Street View along with other iconic British tourist attractions.

Google Street View is an add-on to Google Maps and Google Earth that allows users to see street-level photographs of a number of cities.

In May this year, Google and VisitBritain asked web users to vote for the tourist attractions they'd most like to see appear on the Street View service.

After Stonehenge topped the poll, Google dispatched a specially-designed trike that can navigate rural areas and capture photographs for the service.

Along with Stonehenge, web users can also see photographs of Millennium Stadium, Angel of the North, the Eden Project and Warwick Castle on the service.

The set of TV soap Coronation Street has also recently been added to Google Street view.

Sian Jones, brand manager, Platforms and Online, ITV, said: "We know that it's important to Corrie fans to be in the know about their favourite soap and we're really proud to be the first UK soap to open their doors to the Google Street View cameras".

Google also revealed that Loch Ness will be available on the site sometime next year, but due to its size, it is taking longer to photograph than other iconic landmarks.
