Would an unlocked US 3G iPad 2 work in the UK?

I've seen a couple of US iPad 2s on eBay and wondered if the 3G would work here if they were unlocked.

Yes, 3G will work fine. You just need to figure out a way to unlock it.

Unless iPad was sold unlocked by Apple it will become locked with next update.

iPad and iPad 2 have always been unlocked, so you can easily put in any SIM and it will work. Just be careful of VAT charges when importing, which will add 20% onto the price.

Yeah, it'll be unlocked/sim-free.

Wasn't there some location issue with only being able to connect to the US iTunes etc?

I think it's has to do with iTunes account. Depending which country you have account setup. You cannot move apps from one country to another. I don't think it has anything to do with device itself.
