URL disappeared from .co.uk (web) but not .com or .co.uk

Just wondered if you've ever come across this phenomenon:

Google.co.uk (the web) - URL does not appear and subsequently website has dropped to 200+
Google.com - URL appears and website is on page one
Google.co.uk (the tab UK) - URL appears and website is on page one

So my question is:

Why is this happening?

I believe this could be a temporary shift as it is not like the URL dropped in position - but simply cannot be found.

No dodgy linking. No change in Geo targeting. The URL simply cannot be found when using Google.co.uk (the web).

Thanks in advance for your feedback.

Just one small edit on this...

Turns out that the URL is returning for:

blue widget (double space in between)
blue widget_ (space at the end)
Blue Widget

But just not:

blue widget (no spaces)

Any thoughts?!

Anyone have a view on this? Still no change.

Find it very strange that the page has totally disappeared from one filter on Google. Has anyone else ever experienced this?
