After some time trying to disconnect outer door handle cable, have finally solved it.
Removal of lock

a. Lift collar & pull off window winder
b. Remove screws: behind cap in door lever recess, in door handle recess, at bottom of door (2 off)
c. Prise door panel away from door carefully at bottom & continue around door
d. Finally lift door panel away at top
2. Prise inner door lever cable moulding from door panel
3. Unscrew door lock screws (3 off) from door edge
4. Remove section of soundproof sheet from upper rear of door
5. Remove lock from door by sliding forwards, over glass channel & out through aperture
6. Disconnect cable from lock by lifting tag on connector & sliding out
7. Remove plastic bung from edge of door above lock aperture & unwind screw inside as far as it will go
8. Pull outer door handle end cap out of door
9. Remove outer door handle by pulling handle outwards until it unclips at back, then pull handle backwards until it unclips at front & withdraw handle
10. Drill out rivet from door panel next to door handle front hole position
