Google Local Search - It's Gone!

Is anyone else experiencing this? Have I missed some recent news about this feature? Thanks...

Does seem that they're making some changes.
I think they're integrating local results more into the actual SERP than they used to. Will definitely keep an eye on this.

If anyone has heard anything more about this, please let me know! Thanks again...

A search in the UK, from a UK IP for a place in London gives me Australian results! I love my wife, but that is a far for a romantic dinner for two! South Bank is a well known part of London (for those of you who don't know) and Google should have been able to distinguish between this South Bank and a South Bank is Oz.
But anim8tr, back to your original point - I am seeing less results in local search over in the UK - but I have to say when they do show up, the maps are all over the place.
EDIT - BTW I also searched 'pages from the UK' and the result was still the same. ;-)

Andy, that is odd. I haven't seen results like this. I wonder if your internet connection is somehow rerouted through Australia? Maybe a "traceroute" would shed some light on this (?).

anim8tr - its just the tip of the ice berg! Since June 6th 2009 a number of non UK based websites (not even UK focused) have been appearing withing the SERPs across the board. This resulted in the following website being created - http://ukserps.co.uk/ - and Matt Cutts releasing a video answering a question no-one asked - http://www.mattcutts...say-uk-results/. Could it be Caffeine? Could it be a testing ground? Could it be a broken Geo filter (believe me someone has put that argument across!)? Who knows. But recently other SEOs in other countries have started to voice their concerns.
It should also be noted that 'UK' related searches have increased since June.
