Google Street View lands Brit love cheat in divorce trouble

March 31st, 2009 - 5:01 pm ICT by ANI  

London, Mar 31 (ANI): A Brit man is facing divorce after his wife spotted his car parked outside another woman’s house, via Google’s Street View application.

His wife saw the Range Rover using the Internet giant’s new Street View service, while she was spying on a female friend’s home.

Although the hubby claimed that he was away on business, his wife easily caught him red-handed after she recognised his car because of its blinged-up hubcaps.

The love cheat is not the only husband trapped by Google’s controversial new 360-degree photo search, which covers 25 cities and towns throughout the country.

“I was talking about the Range Rover case when another divorce lawyer came up to say his firm was dealing with the same sort of thing. People are getting caught out on Google,” the Sun quoted top media lawyer Mark Stephens as saying.

He added: “I suspect the husband’s lawyers will claim it was an invasion of privacy that will cost him his marriage and Range Rover.”

Ever since Street View was launched on March 20, it has triggered a stream of complaints from people caught on camera. (ANI)
