400 Bad Request on BBC sites

Description of the issue:
When I try to access the BBC News and Sport websites, more often than not I get the following error:
400 Bad Request
Request Header Or Cookie Too Larg

Then when I click the bookmark again it usually works. However, if I click on a link on the page it usually (but not always) fails but once it has failed it won’t be resolved by a refresh.

This has only just started happening just since I’ve come to France for Christmas.

I don’t get the same problem with Chrome. The site behaves properly.

Steps to Reproduce (add as many as necessary): 1. 2. 3.

  1. Go to go to https://www.bbc.com/news or https://www.bbc.com/sport/football using a bookmark and the error arises. Click on the bookmark again and it usually works the second time,

  2. From the above click on a link on the page and the error occurs.

Actual Result (gifs and screenshots are welcome!):

Show the web page.

Expected result:
Display the web page.

Reproduces how often:
Not all the time but once it kicks in there’s no avoiding it,.
