Bing RegionalWebmasterWorld administrator, engine, feels Bing has upped the weighting of local domains and how well they rank in the localized version of Bing search. He posted this at WebmasterWorld saying:

When using bing uk i'm noticing uk domains getting prominence over generally better ranked and better linked .com, despite being hosted in the uk.

Have you noticed this?
