Stolen Domain Name

Hi all.
We bought a domain (.com and also .co.uk) for our company. Originally set up the email and had the hosting done thru the company where we bought the domains from (1&1.com).

Last month we contacted a "web" designer to have our web sorted but after paying £500 deposit for his service nothing was delivered. Yesterday I decided to cancel his services and requested a refund based on the fact that no work has been done (only thing he did was to set up a "maintenance banner" that comes up when you type our web address).
Now he changed all our email passwords and unless we pay the balance (£600) he will not release the emails.
So I tried to contact the original host company (1&1.com) and was told that he canceled the hosting. I was told to check "whois.com" for more information and there I could see that he set up the hosting under his company.
What can I do to get back our domains?
How do I go about getting back our emails and take them to another hosting company?

Thanks for your help
