Bizarre moments captured on camera on Google street view as it travels around our cities


Google Street View got more than it bargained for when a workman decided to show off his bare bottom as the camera passed by a Glasgow council depot

Street View ‘tiger’

Cameras on the roof of a car are occasionally seen when Google Street View visits your area

They cover miles across the UK and capture some picturesque scenes en-route.

The images are used as a navigation tool for walkers, cyclists and drivers in cities, towns and villages across the country.

But the Street View camera does occasionally snap a few bizarre, amusing and sometimes weird clips on its travels.

And the Daily Record captured some of the weirdest images taken by the camera as it travelled.

After searching RightMove, one first-time buyer decided to search Google Street View for a little bit more information about a property of interest.

But the camera captured this worrying moment as a police officer is seen leaving the property with a letter.

The odd detail left the house hunter thinking “something wasn’t right” – and forced him to ditch the property.

An eagle-eyed Google Maps user has spotted what appears to be a “scrap” on a deserted street in Fife

Two men were captured throwing punches and being pushed to the ground in Glenrothes in what looks like a vicious roadside brawl.

But people have been left convinced the so-called ‘fight’ is nothing more than an attention-grabbing prank by two pals.

The fight was spotted by Twitter user @samueldcf in April last year as he posted photos of the fisticuffs in action.

At first glance, this image seems pretty ominous but it actually appears to be a pair of pranksters creating their own fake ‘murder scene’.

Incredibly, it was so convincing that the police were eventually called and the garage owner was forced to apologise.

Patrons of Orwell’s in the Anderston, Glasgow certainly made their feelings known about the street view camera when it captured them outside the pub as they enjoyed a smoke.

The street view cameras also spotted a big cat hanging out a flat in Glasgow.

Glasgow Zoo may have closed its doors in 2003, but based on this image there may be a wild animal or two still at large.

And an image captured near Ardmair Beach shows what appears to be an accident in the Highlands.

Three people can be seen looking on as a car is seen in front of them stuck in the ditch.

A gathering of superheroes was also spotted as the Street View cameras passed through one of the northern isles.

The gloved heroes were among a queue of assorted people dressed in unusual outfits.

The Daily Record said this group in Shetland were at a fancy dress party and not the actual Avengers, but they still brought amusement to Street View’s more unusual moments.

Not every sight can be captured, however, and when the Google car passed one busy road, it failed to show anything people might recognize.

No matter what they were looking for, the image simply showed a plastic bag which had been caught on one of the cameras on a windy day.

The busy road in the southside of Glasgow failed to show much after the bag obscured anything that the camera tried to picture.

Occasionally pranksters played for the camera which continues to capture our everyday lives and updates on the areas where we live.

But overall they provided a snapshot of our lives which people can use to help them find somewhere or navigate in a place they have never been.
