Thursday, 11th March 2010 by

In an absolutely enormous update, Google have in the last few minutes launched brand new Street View images for the whole of the UK – bringing the total coverage to a reported 96% of all UK roads.

The images cover roads from Land's End to John o' Groats, and actually extend all the way beyond, right up into Shetland.

Google have recorded images of a further 210,000 miles of roads, bringing the total to approximately 246,985 miles of coverage.

We expect lots of new fascinating and probably scandalous sights to be discovered in the next couple of days, so be sure to leave a comment with a link to anything you find!
