Google Maps Street View is used by people to help navigate their own country as well as destinations around the world.

The strange sighting was spotted by a Reddit user who took a screenshot of the Street View image.
They captioned the photo: “Escaped prisoner found near a jail!”
The post was immediately inundated with comments from other Reddit users.
One person said: “People should start dressing as prisoners and walking around prisons to throw people off.”
Another said: “I live near a jail that only houses trustees and they work on a farm next to the jail.
“Some days you can drive by and there’s guys dressed head to toe in stripes driving tractors and on football down the road.
“Every time without doubt I look to see if it’s anyone I know lol.”
Another user commented: “Maybe he was arrested naked and just released.”
