Description

If you search for the glasgow postcode G12 8LB it (correctly) returns the street Southpark Avenue. (Actually it returns it twice, I'm guessing because part of the street is one-way so it's broken into two ways, but that's not the bug).

It also returns a different street, also called Southpark Avenue in a nearby town. It's as if it's looking up a list of street names in that postcode, and then returning all streets with that name in a much wider area.

It's probably worth noting that Barrhead, where the other street is located, is within the G(lasgow) postcode area, G78 to be exact.
