Hello and Welcome.
My name is ***** ***** Im happy to help / advise -
I note you haven't been back to check on your question yet - you are welcome to get back to me anytime.
There are a couple of ways forward on this.. One is to get a locksmith to it but that can turn expensive.
The other two ways are common to the locked keys in boot issue on this model - One is to break out the left rear light unit.. it does demolish the light and you would require a new unit after - once the lamp unit is broken out- you can then reach in and manually trigger the latch to open the boot.
The other way is to remove the rear number plate and drill a hole in the boot skin adjacent to where the lock mech is - you can then use a screwdriver or such like to reach in and trigger the lock to open the boot.
Im sorry there is not any other way / no switch in the car or emergency release as there are on US models.. so those are the ways on this as above.
Let me know how you go..and / or let me know if you need anything further on this..
