I cannot login to Magento 2 admin due to the fact it is installed on 127.0.0.1:8080. This is an imported site and not a fresh install.
I have changed cookie domains to reflect the correct paths but still no admin access.
Anyone have any ideas?

Try creating a new user:
bin/magento admin:user:create --admin-user="testing" --admin-password="123123q" --admin-email="email@example.com" --admin-firstname="Test" --admin-lastname="Test"
When you get error:
No Administrators role was found, data fixture needs to be run

As a quick fix:
Delete value of following from table
web/cookie/cookie_domain web/cookie/cookie_httponly web/cookie/cookie_lifetime web/cookie/cookie_path
it seems that your account is locked, try unlock by command prompt. open cmd got to you magento directory root and type the following command.
php bin/magento admin:user:unlock <username>
username will be your user name of account. it will be like
php bin/magento admin:user:unlock admin
