replacing rivets

My slightly mistreated Giant Defy has three rivets that are no longer usable - one rack mount point that sheared off, both (!) front derailleur mount points loose. I can deal with the first one, but obviously I need to get the derailleur ones sorted ASAP. Was wondering what the best way to remove the old rivets is (given that the derailleur mount is still loosely screwed in, with both screws just turning the rivets round and round in their holes) and whether anyone could recommend a bike shop (pref east London) who would be able to install new rivets, as I've yet to find one that is able to do this!
