Google has extended the service of its Street View to cover an additional 210,000 miles of UK roads, including both urban and rural areas.

The Google street-level mapping technology will now cover nearly 238,000 miles, about 99% of the UK’s roads following the expansion of its service, according to the Independent.

The technology will now cover nearly every street in the country, from the Shetland Islands, the most Northerly point of the British Isles, to Penzance, its most Southerly point.

Google Street View was launched in March 2009, to feature 360-degree images covering 25 cities, nearly 12% of Britain’s streets and roads.

The technology, which can automatically blur faces and car number plates, is fitted with cameras on specially designed cars.
