Plusnet routing my search traffic?

I found this strange, looks like Plusnet is my google searchs through their IP? (see image attached)
When I clear my browser cache it reverts to google IP, after a few searchs, google.co.uk reverts to a Plusnet IP?
Is Plusnet , checking what I search on google?  Shocked

Probably going through a Google cache, this is so that Google content (youtube etc) is closer to the subscribers and therefore cuts down peering costs.

I can't duplicate it but then again I am not using Plusnet's DNS servers
