Any other way to get this open?

Bonnet release hinge not working, key not working to open the boot.

Climb in the back through the rear seats, you can open the boot with the small latch direct on the latch

The cable might have broke on the realise lever on the latch so check it when you manage to open

move the lever bar as much as possible and give door a whack near the lock area a few times.
May need use your foot and hold lever bar with small vise grips or similar, sometimes helps have someone outside pushing in which helps jolting action budge it, maybe some spray lube too .
If the lever bar not really moving then need get down and poke around with latch itself to try and get it move .

Cheers, from the picture would the lever bar need to be moved left or right?

Get someone move the key to determine bar movement if can't see by looking at it.
also worth trying having someone pull lever by seat while you nudge it from inside. mixture of this and some release oil may sort it. can you see any debris that may of got caught in latch when last closed .

The lever on the boot latch needs moving clockwise I think?? Get a thin bar and poke into the latch near the bottom trim
