A Street View car with its 'all seeing' camera on roof
Google's been stopped from taking pictures of homes in Buckinghamshire for its Street View site.
Police were called to the village of Broughton after angry residents staged a protest against the mapping service.
They blocked the car which has a camera on top of it giving 360-degree views of roads and homes.
One man described it as "an invitation" to criminals and said it was an invasion of privacy.
Paul Jacobs was one the first to spot the car driving past his home on Wednesday.
"I don't have a problem with Google wanting to promote villages," he said. "What I have a problem with is the invasion of privacy, taking pictures directly into the home."
Google defends actions
The company says it's talked to a number of police forces and made sure that people can have their homes removed from the site if they want to.
A spokeswoman for Thames Valley Police said a member of the public had called them to say they were standing in the road along with a number of others preventing the driver from moving forward.
She added: "They felt his presence was and intrusion of their privacy. When police arrived at the scene the car had moved on."
In a statement, Google said: "Imagery is taken on public property and is no different from what any person can readily capture or see walking down the street."
