adviceplease--You forgot the image.
But if you do not live in the UK that may be the problem.  BBC often blocks content sent to viewers outside the UK claiming that the content has been paid for by UK taxpayers.

Yes I have , still comes up the same, it is local to the machine as it doesn't effect anyone else.

Could it be something cached somewhere that I need to delete?

adviceplease--
Did you click on the "change your cookie settings" link?
You have not told us what version of IE you are using but the instructions below for IE7.x are more or less valid for later versions.

And here are BBC's own instructions

the same!

I believe its something to do with the style sheet not loading, but I am unsure how to fix this for this one site

It looks like the style sheet isn't loading; that's probably because it comes from http://static.bbci.co.uk/ (as opposed to http://www.bbc.co.uk). Check your settings to make sure they allow content from a different domain to be loaded (I don't have IE handy, but as I recall, it's in Tools/Internet Options).

Check your security settings. Under trusted sites, add the static.bbci.co.uk URL, and see if that fixes it.

Okay... a couple of things you need to look at.

1. Did you check the add-ins, as nobus suggested? Personally, I would disable all of them and see if the problem disappears, then reactivate them one at a time until the style sheet stops loading again -- at which point, you'll know which is the offender.

2. Can you install a different browser and see if you have the same issue? I've looked at the page in four different browsers and it loads just fine (I'm in the US, so you can discount the restrictions the BBC might place on those of us on this side of the pond).

You might have something in your local security settings as well -- your A/V and/or firewall software.

For the record, I don't care about the points. So if a Moderator wants to change this, he can.

We don't know that. I merely asked the Asker if he had checked the add-ins; there is no evidence that he did. So either 1) he had a setting that kept the style sheet from loading (easy enough to do, if it came from a different domain) or 2) the server that was sending the style sheet was down; or 3) any of a number of other things completely unrelated to the add-ins.

So... there's no evidence at all that you answered the question -- just that he favored a more complete set of suggestions.
