Pigeon defecates on a camera used for the Google Street View service

Photographs taken for Google's Street View service show a pigeon defecting on the screen of the Street view car in Los Angeles.

It is the latest mishap to hit the Street View service, which launched its British version earlier this year.

The online tool, which accompanies Google's mapping service and satellite imagery, provides photographs of 22,360 miles of roads across 25 cities around the UK.

Allowing people to view a road from ground level, the controversial Street View car has caught a variety of weird and humorous things with its roof-mounted 360-degree camera, since it was launched in May of 2007. In this year alone, Street View has hit a bridge, been pulled over by the police, used to promote a musician's music and even ripped a hole in the space-time fabric. The service has captured also photographs of a cycling accident, a man vomiting and a member of the public leaving a sex shop, which were all taken down after complaints from users.

There are also concerns that pictures taken by the service could be used by criminals to plan crimes.
