How can I force the Ajax/jQuery style pages on the BBC website to update on the user end?

I frequently use the BBC to follow sports and news. They favor a liveblog style that updates automatically as new information is added, without a page refresh. However, these pages seem to get "stuck" a lot for me, where a page refresh does nothing but 5-6 updates will come rolling in at random. Tab focus doesn't seem to affect this. I'm using Chrome on OS X, though I have had this happen in Safari as well. Is there any way to make the page update?
