A driver headed through Bexleyheath has joined scores of others caught on Google’s street view camera.

Stray cows, murder pranks, and a man chasing the car in a horse mask have all been spotted on the map service’s street view since it was first launched 10 years ago.

Today we discovered a local joker on the website, which has taken shots of roads around the world, the bulk coming from the US, Canada and western Europe.

The image, taken outside Bexleyheath bus garage in Erith Road, appears to show a driver sticking his middle finger up to the camera in June last year.

According to Google Street View, the image of the offensive gesture, which dates back to the time of the Ancient Greeks, was taken in August 2016.
