In a recent update to section 58 of the Terrorism Act 2000, which states that a person commits an offence if ‘he collects or makes a record of information of a kind likely to be useful to a person committing or preparing an act of terrorism…' adding: ‘ "record" includes a photographic or electronic record'.

So not wanting to break the law I decide not to publish the pictures that Google took of Policmen, or Police cars or even the cars parked in a Police station with an off duty Police officer getting into a car and the number plate clearly shown. but what happens if we do have a terrorist attack and it’s proven that Google street view was used by terrorists ??
