A seagull has been caught photo-bombing a Google Street View camera.

The incident took place as the Google car mapped out streets across the country.

The seagull can be seen suspended in mid-flight, just above the vehicles' camera on Pier Avenue, Clacton-on-Sea, in Essex.

The picture was spotted by Gary Ashby, 32, of Clacton.

He said he found the image "hilarious”.

“They have a thing for me as they keep chasing me on my walks along the seafront," he said.

The image is the latest photo-bomb from a seagull, after amateur photographer David Black’s image of the Red Arrows air show in Clacton last August was invaded by another bird.
