Giant pliers appear on Google Street View

A man in the UK looking up his street on Google discovered a giant pair of floating pliers above his house.

The unusual picture was likely the result of an accidental blunder by the driver of the car mounted camera that takes the pictures for Google's Street View service. The picture has since been updated on the site to remove the pliers.

"A curious resident in West Bromwich found a rather unusual aspect to his road when he logged on to Google Street View - a giant pair of floating pliers."

Reminds me of this Look Around You episode (where an enormous pair of scissors [appears] in the sky directly above the observatory): "Did you see that?!"

no need for this on unexplained mysteries. Since this is in a section which really has nothing to do with unexplained mysteries and for other stuff then yes it should be here.

Should be a hyphen at "car mounted". Car-mounted. Poor hyphen. Gone the way of the poor apostrophe.
