I was checking to see if you had already found your answer or if you still need assistance from one of the Professionals.

Hello, welcome. My name is***** will do my very best to assist you with your question. I apologize if you have been waiting long for a response.
What causes this issue is the clock spring behind the drivers side air bag is stuck, the spring is likely not failed but only stuck. To correct this issue the air bag has to be removed.

Thanks for your help Mike. This seems to be the answer and the garage are working on it. They changed the driver's airbag and thought this had sorted the problem but the horn is still going off. This is a BRAND new car! Should we ask for a replacement car or just hope the garage manage to sort the problem and hope there's nothing else wrong with the vehicle?

Honestly with this type of issue happening already with a new vehicle, in my opinion I would request a different vehicle.
