Domain not renewed!

A friend of mine who has his domain hosted with PlusNet and gets all his mail delivered to it, suddenly discovered that he was getting no mail. I investigated and found his PN mail address worked fine, it was just his domain that didn't work. I now see that the domain was allowed to expire despite PlusNet supposedly having to auto renew it.  It seems another host has grabbed the domain.
What to do?
I presume PlusNet are liable for purchasing the domain back from whoever has grabbed it?

Can you let me know your friends account details so we can take a look?

Re: Domain not renewed!

OK, Have got the real story now - apparently the domain was not registered with PN, but with Nildram (as was), now TalkTalk Business. They never sent out a renewal notice email AFAIKS.
Perhaps we will have some luck with the "Redemption Grace Period" in getting the domain back from the Domain Sniper?
This is all a bit of a nightmare, as his email is going to a third party potentially.
