UK reopens probe into Google's Street View data capture

12 June 2012 Last updated at 22:39 BST

Google is back under investigation after gathering personal data while cameras on its cars took pictures for its UK Street View service.

The Information Commissioner's Office previously dropped a probe into the affair after being told limited data had been "mistakenly collected".

However, it said it had since become aware of reports that a Google engineer had deliberately written software to obtain a wider range of material.

The BBC's Rory Cellan-Jones has more details.
