Got a tow home tonight from the RAC, the guy said he thinks the slave cylinder is kaput. Are they internal or external on the K mk1?

Don't know for sure but would be very surpised ...even surprised.... if it was not an internal Concentric Slave Cylinder.
Have a look.... pipes down bellhousing and go inside, internal.... and external should be visible anyway.

We are talking clutch here are we not. Which surprized me as if the RAC man is correct Renault must have changed some time after 2005 as they were a cable operated clutch before that.
All I can tell you is, I was driving and the clutch pedal would only come half way back up, it did this on and off for about 10 miles of driving then stayed on the floor so I couldn't put it in gear, which is when I called the RAC. He knelt down in the foot well and got it in gear because the car lurched forward.

That sounds more like a sticky pedal or even cable...Skippy is right that earlier Kangoos had cable clutches
Moving the pedal will not free a sticking slave cylinder, I would be looking at the pedal end first.... could be as silly as a return spring disconnected.

Just got a quote from my local garage, for slave cylinder and clutch £806 😱
Ouch!
Shop about.
That is somewhere around dealer prices, even if it included a dual mass flywheel...400 or so would be expensive in my book.
Google for clutch specialists in your area
