Grey legality, but I would do something like that too ;D

If the cyclist has half a brain he can get the padlock off with a piece of cut-up coke can, anyway.. ah, wait. Based on Ron's description he's probably still there staring at it, isn't he ;D :D

As part of my continual professional development and a desire to get in to Red-Teaming, I have been learning to pick locks and many of them are very, very easy unless you get a ruddy expensive one.  A basic 4 pin can be done by a beginner like me in a few seconds.  Made me think......

Yeah - I had a play with lock picking a few years ago when a colleague brought a practice set into the office.. I did not have the knack so gave up any ideas of becoming an international spy ;) But padlocks .. a simple shim opens the cheap ones and probably a good number of expensive ones!

Lots of YouTube videos of people demonstrating how. Do wish I had the 'feel' for proper lock picking, though.

Er, y'know, for research purposes ;D

No note, Mr. G. because no pen nor paper, but if I had had, I would have advised him to take it to the local nick whereupon they would unlock it - then charge him for cycling in a forbidden area!
How do you use a coke can to defeat a padlock?

Like this: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=BEOWb68YumY

Or you can use two spanners, like this: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1jJP0CcuJyE

(And many, many other videos on YouTube showing other methods..)

They wouldn't charge him.  Depending on who has responsibility for enforcing that area it could be the council or the police, either way it would be a FPN.

FPN?
If he actually did go to the police station, and they wrer responsible for upholding the law (novel concept for the police?), then surely they would take the appropriate action?  ???

If a driver takes a car on to an area forbidden for motor vehicles he isn't going to be charged with wrekless driving. He's going to get a FPN unless he did something else to warrant a chargeable offence.

Some areas are not enforced by the police but by the council. It depends on who applied for the order.

Yes, but what does "FPN" stand for, please?

Good.  While it wont bring the lady back, I think it sends the right message although I still think that if it was a motorist his sentence would have been less.
