The U.K. is reopening its investigation into Google Inc.'s (GOOG) Street View program, according to reports from the Associated Press and the BBC.
The U.K's Information Commissioner's Office said Google needs to answer additional questions about the collection of personal data by people in mapping vehicles, the reports said. The U.K. agency said the U.S. Federal Communications Commission's investigation of Google raised more issues, according to the reports.
In April, the FCC fined Google $25,000 for allegedly obstructing its investigation. Google said it "disagrees with the premise" of the fine, but "has determined to pay the forfeiture proposed (by the FCC) in order to put this investigation behind it."
A Google spokesman told the BBC "were happy to answer the ICO's questions."
