A website that allows you to track any mobile phone around the globe has been launched in the UK.

The World Tracker GSM mobile phone tracking service will cost 16p for every request made, but does mean you can keep track of children or cheating husbands.

All you need to run the service is either a mobile phone, or a computer with access to the internet. There is no other hardware or software required!

The service promises to track a mobile phone accurately between 50m to 500m, however the company says this may from telephone service provider to telephone service provider

The system is compatible with any handset working on the four main UK Network providers - O2, Vodafone, Orange and T-Mobile.

Once a phone is added, we then send an SMS to the phone. The text sent to the phone is like this: Tom Smith (07712345678) has requested to add you to their Buddy List! To accept, simply reply to this message with 'LOCATE'
