Mine opens zoomed on my area...but I have a Google account and they know where I am...(I'm going to get slated for that).

Sorted
I went to https://www.google.co.uk/preferences?location#location and set the location to England which fixed it in Firefox but not Internet Explorer as I have cookies blocked on that browser
