Nominet's Dispute Resolution Policy is ideal for this. Nominet controls all .uk names. If you complain via DRS Nominet will contact the person, if they fail to transfer the name you can request an independent expert look at it. This costs £750 and should the expert rule in your favour Nominet will immediately transfer the name. Having a UK TM isn't a prerequisite for a favourable ruling, the basic test seems to be would the registrant have registered the name had your business not existed if not then you are likely to be successful.
