I found a local chap who came and took mine off for 70 notes cash.  It's probably too far for him to get to you but if you look around on google/yellow pages you might find someone nearby.

I bought an Omega at the Witney auction 10 years ago. When I got it home I discovered it had a locking nut on each wheel, and could find no unlocking key in the car. In desperation I found the previous owner's name and address on documentation in the car, and phoned him. 'It was my wife's car. The tool should be in the car', he said. He asked her where the tool was, it turned up in her handbag. I drove to his house, and he gave it to me. Problem solved.

Every used car I have bought since, I have checked before purchase if it has locking wheel nuts, and, if so, if the unlocking key is present.

There you go Ron - you need to have a rummage in your neighbour's wife's purse. Terry said so :y
