Google has admitted that its Street View cars have been wrongly gathering information from people's wi-fi activity for three years.

Head of communications at Google Peter Barron has told the BBC that this was a mistake and more robust procedures will be put in place.

He also confirmed that Street View cars, which were collecting the wi-fi data, will not be doing so in the future.
