Google launched its Street View service in the UK not so long ago and has already raised the ire of some privacy advocates. The Street View car has been driving around different parts of the country taking pictures of roads, people, and homes.

Some residents in the village of Broughton in Buckinghamshire went the extra mile to prevent Street View from taking pictures in their city. The residents actually blocked the Street View cars path.

The angry villagers actually formed a human chain to stop the vehicle from taking images of their homes. The vehicle was spotted by one villager who raised a resident army to run the car out of town. There is no mention of pitchforks or torches in the incident.
