Landlord has vanished with my money.

My former landlord is ignoring my communications and hasn't returned an accidental rent over-payment. What are my legal options here in the UK?

When I moved out of my last flat in May, my bank failed to stop the standing order sending money to my landlord.
My landlord emailed me to notify me of this, then stopped replying to my emails and text messages. He's sitting on about £1200 of my money.
What's my recourse here? Is there any legal action I can take that won't consume more money than is at stake? To be clear - I'm not talking about a deposit here, that was settled separately.
