Then this happened:
A garage owner has apologised for staging a scene that looked like a murder in an Edinburgh street, which was caught on Google Street View.
Dan Thompson, 56, who owns Tomson Motor in Giles Street, had to say sorry after receiving a visit from the police. The mechanic had lain on the road while his colleague stood over him with a pick axe handle after spotting the Google camera car from a distance. However, a web user saw the image and made a complaint.
