I'd be contacting your insurance company to let them know you have made an error that requires a trade person to remove a screw, in case someone slips and does damage the screen in a way that requires repair.

Thanks very much for all the tips guys.  In the end I contacted a tradie I know who works in aluminium joinery,  and he managed to remove the screw first by drilling something into it, and then using a different attachment and drilling in the reverse direction to fish it out (I think that's what he did - he did it all so fast).   

 

TV is up now, and in case anyone's wondering - the LG OLED is stunning!  Thanks again

Sounds like screw extractors.  Glad you got it sorted.
