This Google Street View "Fight" In Edinburgh Has Upset Council Officials

It looks very much like the brawl was staged.

City centre councillor Joanna Mowat is quoted by the Daily Mail as saying:

It is disappointing that Google have chosen to use a picture which appears to be staged as some sort of homage to Trainspotting rather than an image that better reflects the true nature of Edinburgh's Princes Street.

It is a safe city centre with probably the best skyline in the world.

BuzzFeed News has contacted Google for a comment on the image and Councillor Mowat's remarks.

A Google spokeswoman said they were not commenting on the issue.
