    remove all the screws at the front of the wheel arch which holds the lining to the body/bumper. Open the bonnet, and you will see 4 black circles with small holes in the middle along the front edge which hold the top of the bumper to the body... Push the centre of these straight through and then pull out the big black circles (push rivets). Now under the bumper there are 2 screws holding it in place from the underside. Remove these.

    pull the bumper outwards from the wheel arches as if you are stretching it apart, and then pull if forward and it should come off the car with ease!

    alternative way to get those four plastic rivets out mate, if you have a small self tapping screw that will screw into the middle, screw it in just a little bit, grab the screw with the pliers, pull them up, then lever out the plastic rivet that they sat in the middle of. saves you dropping them through and having to hunt for / lose them.
