Bank CEO's house disappears from view

Google

Now you see it, now you don't.

The home of the shamed former boss of the Royal Bank of Scotland, Fred Goodwin, has been removed from Google Street View amid continuing fears of vandalism.

International Business Times reports that Goodwin, dubbed 'Fred the Shred' for his ruthless approach to business and job cutting to boost profits, has already had his car vandalised in the past and seen his windows smashed with bricks.

If users now try to look at his house on Oswald Road in Edinburgh, Scotland, the property is no longer available via Google Street View. However, other properties on the same street remain visible.

'We are not authorised to give out details on removal requests. Anybody is at liberty to get their house removed', said a Google spokesperson in a media statement.
