A popular street in Cambridge was renamed by its nickname 'P*ss Alley' on Google Maps.


Students often referred to King's Lane as P*ss Alley as it is a shortcut running between two main streets containing pubs and clubs where revelers often relieve themselves, and the nickname was mentioned on Google Maps, the Daily Star reported.

However, a former mayor of the city said that it isn't good for Google to be highlighting it around the world.

A third-year student at Pembroke College at the University of Cambridge was among those who spotted the renamed street on Google.

Though the search engine giant declined to comment, it has corrected the name on the Maps.
