Geolocation strangeness? UK site more prominent on .com

Hi,

I have a client who wrote a news item yesterday afternoon on their site. This morning I see via Analytics that someone has found the site through a search directly related to that news post. The thing is, when I use that phrase on G.com the item appears on 1st page. But when I search the same thing on G.co.uk it's nowhere to be seen. The site is hosted in the UK and even has its location set specifcally to the UK in WMT. So what's going on there? Why wouldn't the item show on .co.uk?

TIA

Are we talking organic search or google news results?

Is a CDN being used? If so is Googlebot properly whitelisted or is it landing on the proxies?

Ok the search is NOW working on .co.uk. with identical top 5 results to .com. The result in question being the 5th. Still interesting though how there was a distinct delay for it to appear in the UK results?

By the way, nothing fancy here. It's just a news blog as part of a small business site.
