Ryan
it may be worth browsing around
http://www.sitemorse.com/survey/report.html?rt=461 - they have various reports
about all UK based websites eg: Local/Central Govt; FTSE, SMEs, etc. 
Not necessarily conclusive, since the tests are automated, but it may help to
form a high-level opinion on percentages of pass/fail...
