LONDON, May 22 (UPI) -- Photos of Paul McCartney's London house were removed from the locator Web site Google Street View after the rock N roll star's security team complained.

The Daily Telegraph said the Web site, which was launched in England in March, has been criticized for allegedly violating people's privacy, and making residents vulnerable to burglars and other villains.

"He was unsettled when he heard Google users could get a 360-degree view of the property," The Sun newspaper quoted a source as saying about McCartney.

A Google spokesman told the tabloid anyone can eliminate their house from the Web site by clicking a button.

"Since the launch of Street View, millions have used it and the vast majority are very happy to have their house included," the spokesman added.
