Three options.

Flexible plastic between the lock and frame, only works if the lock is on the wrong way round find a Yale lock that opens you will see what I mean.

If the door opens inwards kick it in and repair the door frame.

Drilling the lock and using a tool to turn the smashed lock.

As its a shead can you lift the roof or just tip it over?

should be fairly easy to pick. ask a locksmith to come pick it for you, shouldn't be too expensive, alternatively, buy some picks and get cracking ;) easy skill to pickup

How you getting on?

Drilling is the most sensible and cost effective solution. Start it off with a 5mm drill bit then use a decent sized bit, something like 12mm. That will get all the internals out of the way otherwise you find you drill forever and it just sits there laughing at you. :D

Good luck,

Ian. :)

5mm drill bit directly above where the key goes keeping it in the part that twists. drill straight in there and the springs/tumblers get chewed to bits.
It will probably try to twist with the drill once the final tumbler lets go, if not screw driver in the lock just to finish them off.

try youtube some geek/criminal propbably did a video tutorial
