It's a very good advertisement for the bike lock, though.

Interesting question: should the BBC (who are supposed to carry
no adverts) have (as they did) edited the brand out of the
picture in the news article? Compare with the picture in
http://www.coventrytelegraph.net/new...e-lock-9499414
which shows the brand name (“Magnum Plus”) clearly.

grin Shades of Blue Peter. Christopher Trace making something clever

I don't know about "should", but I'm glad they did. It could easily have
been a publicity stunt.
