Failed clutch

The clutch has failed on my daughter's 53 reg car, two months after the Peugeot dealership (who sold the car to her 15 months ago) carried out a service and MOT. Is it reasonable to expect them to have noticed the impending failure of the clutch? What recourse do I have?

No. This would not have been evident during the course of a service 2 months previously. It might not even have been evident during a service 1 week previously.
