Does some other SIM card work on your N80?

If not, it could simply be broken for some reason or another. Have a Nokia repair center check it out:

Before that, if it is a software-related glitch, you could try a firmware update first:

Possible the phone might have been reported stolen at some point?

No blame but where did you buy it from?

Ouch that could be your problem.

Sim Card Registration occurs when the sim cards home network and all other networks it can pick up reject the connection attempt. Either because the Sim card is faulty or unregistered or the network have blocked for some other reason ( imei being reported stolen is another )

If the sim works in another handset then I would say the person has reported the phone lost / stolen either knowingly / unknowingly that it would brick the handset in the uk.
