SInce this is a criminal investigation, can't the police ask Google for the original image with the clear license plate and timestamp?

I don't think Google keeps any of the originals after it's been modified to avoid lawsuits.

Google been in the hot seat lately of street view and wi-fi data mining so they are better off keeping the censored images.

If Google can collect peoples wireless internet information when driving around with street view, they should have the original photo still on their servers and a proper lawful subpoena or search warrant should divulge the missing plate.

They can ask but I certainly doubt Google will provide this information without a court ordered mandate to do so. A lot of the times it isn't worth the time or money going through all of the trouble.

Meh, the 'satellite' view has me moving in to my house five years ago. Thankfully, the whole thing is blurry and the boxes were arranged to look like a driveway pattern. And here I am thinking the coincidence was funny....

It stinks they have not been able to get their RV back or catch this man, or whomever responsible, but I do find it quite amazing at what these Google cams are picking up just on a random drive-by. Maybe he was hired by TOP GEAR, those guys hate RV's, and love smashing them, LMAO!

It's not a camper van, it's a caravan!
If you move to the next image down the street you can almost get a partial index of the 4x4, but the plate is obscured and out of focus.

Where is the FBI special software that unblur things and creates pixels to get 10x the original resolution of a photo ?

wow, guess we know where the keystone cops orginated. i know in the states that if you were to pull up the make and the model and the color and the possible years of that particular style, you could get every registered owner and their home or business address. and being as it's the UK, there can't possibly be that many to begin with as most people don't own automobiles like in the states. i don't know if the UK would require trailering endorsements either, but further inquiry as to how many of those particular owners also have a lisc. trailer also should narrow it down suffciently. then it's just a matter of seeing which owner has the brushgaurd, flared wheel wells, sun roof, full length running boards, the sheild sticker in the mid windshield passenger side, and centered roof mobile phone antenna.
this is not distiguishing enough already for the bobbies? what is this some landrover safari package? lol

Well even if the database doesn't go into that much detail, if it does show a picture of the owner you could flip through the remaining ones and just wait for his picture to be the one you're staring at.
