Today, the highest detail level is giving a patchwork of map tiles, half
from the most recent map and half from the previous one... the colouring is
different, so it is easy to tell which tiles are newer and which are older,
particularly if the boundary between new and old runs through Euston
Station. Every time you hit Refresh (F5) you get a different selection, and
the two coloured halves of Euston swap around.

Looks OK to me.

Even if you hit Refresh multiple times? Maybe it's a caching problem at
Demon.

I've just clicked on the above URL and found Euston station in two colours.
I clicked "Large Map" to widen the area and found that St Pancras and King's
Cross were similarly two-tone. Then I clicked refresh and the tones on all
three stations were swapped!

It's OK here. Whatever I do doesn't replicate the symptoms you report. Might
be worth clearing your browser's cache, if you haven't already tried that.

why would clearing the cache work for a site that I have never been to
before?

I have just been there (for the first every time) and I have a two-tone
Euston as well

It appears to depend on what browser you use. On IE7 I get a mix of the
old and new tiles but on Firefox 3 I only get the new tiles.

It quite often seems to lock on to either the new or old map, but at other
times produces a different mixture of old and new tiles with each refresh.
I've seen both behaviours on IE6 and Firefox.

No problem here now with IE6 via Virgin Media.

As this is the first post you've made on the subject, I would I know that
this is your first visit to the site? I don't do telepathy. As none of the
other posters have indicated that this is their first visit, I was simply
making a suggestion. Regardless of browser or number of refreshes, I don't
see the symptoms that are reported.
