I think you will need to remove the inner boot lid card and find out which part is jammed up.If I recall,it is part electric and part cable operated.

Thanks Eleciedoc once more , the strange thing about it is that it's fine when it's cold and plays up when the sun shines on the boot.
But all attempts to free the manual lock have failed the barrel seems welded to the surround.

The key overide that manually opens the boot when the electric latch fails is rusted into the surround. Tried WD without success. Any idea how i can free the barrel?

Next step would be to remove the complete lock/actuator assy and let it soak in some rust penetrating oil.If all else fails,get yourself a working second hand boot lock unit with a key.

Thanks Eleciedoc , as usual brilliant advice.
I bought a used lock mechanism on its own before reading your post and realising the hesitance could be down to the actuator.
And I have been unable to find a replacement lock assembly probably because the key is specific to the car.
Grateful for your advice on how to proceed or do I revert to your earlier recommendation to soak the whole assembly .
Essentially the lock will work first time when the weather is cool, or the sun is not on the boot
