Google Earth has been used for all sorts of purposes in the UK from finding pools to swim in by nefarious teens to planning vacations and driving routes. What has been missing for the UK Google Earth service is the street view that is popular in the US.

Google is planning to launch Street View in the UK this spring and apparently has vehicles with cameras driving around already. The detailed images taken have raised the ire of some homeowners, military installations and others due to the detail offered.

Users of Street View can get makes and models of cars and may even be able to see license plate numbers and more details. Some claim that the images could be used to plan theft or terrorist acts as well.
