I've been looking at this for the past couple of weeks. I'd almost finished 
sorting out all of the UK geometry problems marked outside of the London 
area - however, I leave it for about 3 days, and the number of geometry 
problems have increased again, with new problems being created. Most of 
these are either mistakes or oddities in the way some people go about 
tagging: there are many places with roads that don't connect to any others - 
many roads which have several ways layered on-top of each other, mostly 
using the same nodes - I even found one place where one-way roads were 
overlayed on top of each other in different directions.

There is plenty to fix out there.
