    Info Police called after Google Street View captures 'fake' murder

    A Google Street View image, mocked up by two men to look like a murder for the cameras, prompts a user to call police to report a 'killing' Street view map [Only registered and activated users can see links. ].


    When Google Street View captured an image of a man holding a pick axe handle standing over an apparently lifeless body in the street, for one user there was only one answer. After they saw the disturbing image they called police to report a murder and officers went round to the scene of the crime.

    But when officers from Police Scotland turned up at Tomson Motor Company in Edinburgh they found Dan Thompson – the ‘dead’ man very much alive.

    Mr Thompson, 56 and mechanic Gary Kerr, 31, had decided to take advantage of the Google Street View cameras and posed for the picture when they saw one of the cars coming.

    "I recognised the Google car coming into the street from the camera tower on the top,” said Mr Thompson.

    "We just thought we had to do something. "This opportunity wasn't coming around very often so Gary grabbed a pick axe handle and we ran out into the street.
