Trademark in URL Infringement?

Hi there - one of my competitors has several sites. One of them is applerepairipswich.co.uk - is this allowed? I thought that using the word apple in the context of this site would be frowned upon  - particularly by a brand like Apple! I'm struggling to make headway against this competitor as they tend to use such tactics so I'm interested whether urls like this can be reviewed by Google/Apple?

 

Many Thanks

Nothing to do with Google

Apple may have issues.

Thanks Craig - I thought that was probably the case. I know I had to register to use the term iPhone etc. in my adwords and wondered whether there was similar thing with this. Much appreciated.
