Google Maps' UK tentacle is today inviting eager virtual travellers to "take a holiday to the Canary Islands" with its all-seeing Street View, and has provided this handy link so you can fly straight to Playa de las Teresitas, Santa Cruz de Tenerife:

Google's recommended Street View view of the Canary Islands

We have no doubt that Google operatives will rush with Segway-like speed to erase this latest example of the failure of Street View's public decency algorithm, as they did with the shock cases of the Madrid squatting bladder purge and the Birmingham kiddy-piddler outrage. Enjoy the view while you can. ®
