El Reg spymobile snapper nailed on Street View

The Rickmansworth surveillance feedback loop

It was kind of inevitable that at least one of El Reg's tireless Google Orwellian black Opel spotters would, in the line of duty, end up nailed on Street View.

Rickmansworth spymobile informant caught on Street View

Terrific. We're obliged to all those readers who've continued to send in their sightings, and we'll update the map asap. Ta very much too to those of you who've wasted no time in supplying entertaining material from Blighty's Street View, like this obligatory "someone taking a shifty slash" shot.

As we speak, a team of highly-trained operatives is working through your emails. Expect a big Street View exposé next week. ®
