Using Chrome Tag Assistant I am getting a strange Analytic UA number

Hi, 

 

I am pretty certain I have removed all 'Google Analytics' references to my Google Analytics account.  And yet on the homepage I am getting this

 

https://screencast.com/t/THdatt0ipMj

 

If I click on META DATA i get this: https://screencast.com/t/Uv9AZN0MosC

 

If I click on Code Snippet I get this: https://screencast.com/t/Ej1QGCnn

 

Then if i click on 'View Source' within the code snippet, I get this: https://screencast.com/t/wEUpk1p4J

 

This seems to imply to me that within Vimeo videos is embedded Google Analytics code?  Is this correct?   I am currently double checking the video on my account at Vimeo but I haven't found anything yet. 

 

Any pointers would be great as the Google Analytics ID number is incorrect. As I would like to re-insert my Google Analytics code for tracking.
