Mum spotted on Google Earth 18 months after death

A WOMAN has said she couldn't believe her eyes after spotting her mum on Google Street View -  more than 18 months after she died.

Denise Underhill, who moved to Florida from Tamworth, Staffordshire, said she had an urge to check on her old home in the UK, and was given the shock of a lifetime when she realised her mother was pictured watering the garden outside her old home, reports The Sun.

The daughter told the Tamworth Herald: "As I went about my housework, I somehow instantaneously had the impulse to call my mother but realising that it was completely out of the question.

"I decided to Google Earth my mother's home to see how it looked, considering, since she had passed away in 2015 and the property had been sold."

But the woman was given the shock of a lifetime when she saw her mother had been captured in the street view.

She said: "At the foot of the driveway was my mother. She was watering the garden, just as she always did.

"I think someone wanted me to see this."

It's not the first time that street view images have caused a sensation, with a friendly dog appearing to have photobombed every single shot taken on a South Korean island.

Faroe Islanders also created their own Google Street View - using sheep to map their homeland.

Bizarre images have also been captured on Google Earth, with photographs of the world's biggest swimming pool to a graveyard for planes caught on film.

People can now even use Google Street View to tour the International Space Station.
