Yes, its an external animated image which is placed on the page from http : //a248.e.akamai.net/6/592/1130/1112359416/oas-eu.247realmedia.com/0/oasuk/RUN-FFI10A-DB-02/loan468x60.gif
Couple of reasons why you can't see that image, you could have something which is blocking the image, like ad blocking software, or the other reason could be you haven't got a flashplayer installed to view the image. A easy way to know if your flashplayer is working if you can see the advert on the right of this page, just below Vote now. You could try lowering you security settings, just to see if that opens it as well.
