Yes indeed. Most interesting. We've lived here since April 2009 and I notice the google camera view of the house shows the previous occupant's car so I guess the photo car went round about a year ago.
In case any reader doesn't know how to use this - go to google.co.uk, and put your postcode into google maps. When the map appears click on the little orange man and drag him over onto your street and put him down, after a couple of seconds the camera view will appear and you can pan around, click on the arrow to drive forward and back etc. A great time-waster!
Wasn't that the time that a suspicious car was seen around the schools? Which of course turned out to the the Google street scene car with a very distinctive apparatus on the roof.
