Navigate to Windows\System32\drivers\etc
Right click "hosts" then open with Notepad
add at bottom on new line.
127.0.0.1 polling.bbc.co.uk

Then save.

You may need to open notepad first, by right clicking and running as administrator, if it refuses to save the file after your change.

It did not actually work for me, but that is probably something to do with stored DNS, so now off to look for the command to flush it.

edit ipconfig /flushdns

that has not worked either?

Which takes you to a BBC NewsBeat page, where the article is still there. As is the pop up social media bar, when scrolling down the page.

Not for me! As I've said. Not on this laptop nor on an iPad.

Further to my earlier post about not seeing it on Win 8.1 IE11, I don't see it on my iPad either.

Odd. Just tested IE11 in Win 8.1 in a VM and I see it: http://i.imgur.com/Z6GPZsr.png
