West Leigh worked on our Electronics Factory, removing large steel window frames. Did a grand job - worth contacting them for advice:

Use a 4inch angle grinder,cut the hinges and remove the sash first.
Cut sections out of the head of the frame and the cill and use a long crowbar to ease the rest of the frame out.
The frames have steel spikes bedded into the brickwork and should ease out,but you may need to cut some as they tend to be awkward sometimes.
