The synopsis of events as written by Richard Harley-Parkinson:
A woman who was waiting for a lift sent directions to her friend who then spotted her in the same spot on Google Street View.
Michele Noad, 52, told pal Rick Hodge she would be standing on the corner outside Somerset County Council in Taunton where she works.
But when he tapped the location into Google Maps to plan his journey Rick, 54, was shown a photo of his destination – featuring Michele standing on the same corner.
He arrived at the location to find consultant Michele standing in the very same spot she had been photographed by Google five months earlier.
