My bike lock is a 4 pin combination lock, it’s where you turn the numbers until you get the right combination and the lock pops open.

I was midway through locking the bike (I was scrambling the numbers up so no one could guess the password when one of the ‘pins’ got jammed. Now, the other 3 pins work and I can change the numbers however one is jammed so I can’t unlock the lock.

Sorry if I made it sound complicated, any help would be appreciated as my bike is now stuck outside a library.

If it helps I can send you a picture of the jammed lock if you ask.

Porters might have some bolt cutters.
Some wd40? £land sells v small cans usually.
Various methods here:

Have seen people use this method of pulling on the cable or u part till you meat resistance and then rotate round , rinse and repeat.

If you leave it there long enough I'm certain someone else will manage to remove it without the pin, so you probably can likewise do the same. I'd suggest just getting some bolt-croppers, cutting it off, and buying a new lock.
