Lock problems with Citroen C1

My son is having lock issues with his 2008 Citroen C1. He has only owned the car for six months, but he’s gone through two keys in that time with both breaking in the lock. Can you offer any advice as a three new locks will cost more than £500.

If the key broke in the lock it would be better to extract the broken key blade with pliars than buy a new key. Where keys are 'waisted' (get narrow near to the handle) you have to be careful to push them right in to the shoulders otherwise they break easily.
