It’s probably the most controversial car in the country – and now the “Google car” is appearing in a street near you.

Mounted with cameras, it is used by the internet giant to provide a 360-degree view of the country’s highways and byways for its controversial Street View service, which critics of the service claim could help burglars pinpoint properties to target and help plot access and escape routes.

The car was yesterday spotted in Shrewsbury, with some residents so concerned about the security implications they contacted their councillor.
