My bonnet is stuck closed

I have a low milage 2006 Fiat Punto Active 1242cc with a jammed bonnet catch?. The bonnet cable release cable is ok in the car and you can hear it moving within the cable but it will not release the bonnet.
I have also taken off the front grill and can get up under the bonnet but it seems the catch is further in.

I have been searching the net to see if I could find any Fiat manufacture help but there does not seem to be any.
