    I saw the car last summer on yarmouth seafront. The driver was parked up eating an icecream! Ive just done a walk around my old streets in leeds for nostalgias sake. Actually managed to find the way home from the pub to my house for a change! I cant even contemplate the amount of work that goes into recreating everything is such detail.

    Hmm, I can't seem to see any street view options in the UK - it has America and Everywhere else, but none in the UK.

    Orange dude is not everywhere yet (I'm too lazy to see if its done for B'ham)

    It works for London, and noticed that it must of been done in a holidays and at least last year, August time.

    Not all of the UK is covered yet. London in quite some detail, and other main cities. I do seem to have lost the satellite imagery though...
