I'm assuming you have an internal DNS server.  If so, it is now has the ultimate say for anything that ends in mycompany.co.uk.  Just because it doesn't know how to resolve it, it won't forward the DNS request because it believes itself to be the highest authority on that name space.

All you have to do is create an 'A' record on your dns server that points "www" to the external IP address of your website, and then www.mycompany.co.uk should work.
