Any UK domain specialists around?

I noticed a lovely .co.uk domain that hasn't been renewed. The renewal date was around 2 months ago.

With .coms I'd just backorder the name with several dropcatchers.

With .co.uk - got no idea what to do?
Any ideas please!

I think UK Domain Names typically drop 92 days from their renewal date, that's about all I "know"!

You could try:

domainrecover dot co dot uk

Have been using them for a few years. No bidding, pay if you are successful.

@Durham_e wow, cheers! I'll do that. Have also backordered it via Pool dot com - didn't know they did .co.uks. One of them two should be able to grab that domain for me surely!

If possible acquire a backorder from the current registrar. This has worked best for me....
