Terry Southgate logged on to see if he could see himself or his wife, Wendy, on the site.

Mr Southgate told The Sun that, when he was looking at his home village of Elmswell, near Bury St Edmunds in Suffolk, he was surprised to see his wife in 43 different shots.

The "Google car" followed the same route that Mrs Southgate used to walk her dog and snapped her on a number of different occasions over a half-mile stretch.

"It was a surprise when I found Wendy and the dog," Mr Southgate told the newspaper.

"Then there she was - over and over again. I counted 43 different shots."

The search engine's 360-degree street-level image service covers 95% of UK roads.
