Paul McCartney's home disappears from Google Street View

Saturday, July 05, 2014

A host of stars have had images of their houses blurred on the online mapping service. The popular feature allows internet users to view street-level photographs across the country. Ex-Beatle McCartney’s London home is blurred on the 3D map – although his street can be seen.

Disgraced former RBS bank boss Fred Goodwin’s £3.5million mansion in Edinburgh is also “lost”. The same blurring obscures the Surrey home of Welsh mezzo-soprano Katherine Jenkins, below, and Google has also obscured the £5million London town house of Tony Blair and his wife Cherie. The Cotswolds mansion owned by pop star Lily Allen and her husband, Sam Cooper, is also fogged. Google said: “We provide easily accessible tools allowing users to request further blurring of any image that features the user, their family, their car or their home.” The company has been dealing with a surge in requests to remove data from its search archives after a European court ruling over the “right to be forgotten”.
