Rusty Padlock

Hi everyone,

Can anyone help? Last weekend I tried to get into my metal shed which has a Master padlock from B&Q. The padlock has ceased and when trying to open it I have snapped the key. I have tried to use a hacksaw with a blade for hardened metal but it did not scratch it. What else can I try?
