Fiat Punto boot won't open

I have a Fiat Punto (2007 model) that has just failed the MoT because the boot will not open from the outside. I have to 'manually' open the boot from climbing over the back seats of the car and lifting the catch. The car has central locking and all over doors lock and unlock fine. Any ideas how this can be fixed? The car was hit quite some time ago and there were problems with the electrics.

The outside hatchback switch must be broken. Or maybe the lock servo too.

Low prices and equally low running costs. Easy to get in and out of. In its day, the best small hatch there was.
