The Daily Mail has a story on a Fleet of 1000 dockless Ebikes soon to be available for Hire in Brent and Ealing . The Cost will be £1 to unlock and 15 p / mile . You can leave them where you like as long as it is in a safe place . In garden sheds all over London I shouldn`t wonder !

Most likely in the Thames with the lithium poisoning the water :(
Cobalt poisoning the water, not lithium. A Lithium Ferrous Phosphate battery eliminates any pollution risk.

Don't think there's that many people that have the luxury of a garden with a shed in London.

Charge won’t last long without a dock.

dockless hire bikes just sounds like a disaster waiting to happen
Well, I heard a story before of a Chinese business man who tried to do the same and all bikes was stolen or destroyed and the business failed...wondering whats gonna happen this time

Charge won’t last long without a dock.
they have a gig economy solution for charging.
Their staff will be notified where the bikes needing charging are, they arrive, swap out the battery.
That does not solve the vandalism issue though.
