HTML entities showing up in search results

As part of my job I search for disability related stories to appear on Ouch!
...So I see a lot of BBC News search results pages.

Just noticed that this quote character is appearing as a raw HTML entity '#34;' on a search results page. It appears to be missing the leading ampersand character which would make it appear correctly on the page.

URL is: http://search.bbc.co.uk/search?tab=ns...
