BBC News reports that Google has already been forced to pull some images from its recently launched Street View Service in the UK. Among the images removed from the service were those of a man being sick, a man entering a sex shop and a person being arrested.

The images were removed and replaced with a black screen that says image removed by request. The rub is that many of the images can still be seen by simply moving up or down the street view slightly.

Google says that it has millions of images and that only a very small percentage of them have been removed. I am sure that many more images will be removed from the service as things progress.
