A WOMAN has been spotted flashing on Google Maps by shocked Street View users.
The identity of the exhibitionist is unknown but she is said to be a woman who lifted up her top as the Google car drove past.
According to The Mirror, the Street View image was captured in the Dingle area of Liverpool.
The woman can be seen stood in a back garden and three other women are on the pavement, possibly looking out for the car.
The flasher is said to have lifted her top just as the Google car drove past.
One woman on the pavement can be seen pointing back to her.
Google uses cars with mounted cameras to capture 360-degree pictures of areas all over the world.
It’s possible the person driving the car didn’t spot the flashing incident at the time.
A Google Maps user is said to have spotted the incident and reported it to the Liverpool Echo.
While the camera-laden vehicles largely capture mundane streets and empty fields, occasionally they happen upon very embarrassing moments.
A Google Maps users once spotted what they thought was a person relieving himself in a secluded spot between two bushes near the city of Roosendaal.
However, his suspicious squat – with trousers pulled down to his thighs – was picked up by cameras on one of Google’s Street View cars.
Fifteen cameras strapped to each vehicle snap panoramic images to create a virtual representation of our surroundings.
Images of the crouching fellow were shared on a popular Google Maps Reddit thread. The post’s author wrote: “I found someone pooping in the grass…”.
If an image is deemed too inappropriate and no amount of blurring will help then Google will take it down from Street View.
