Why does my domain show up in WHOIS as "Renewal in progress"?

There is nothing to be alarmed about if your domain is in this state - it simply means the renewal request has been put through and is being processed by Nominet, the top level registrar for UK domains. 

This will happen automatically but may take a few days; you won't lose access to your site in this time.
