    Tell Vauxhall they can pay for the damage they cause then...

    Cna you get insidee and release it from the inside, may involve some taking off of interior panels though..

    So you've got the manual release inside then? So what happens when you pop a key/screwdriver in it and turn it? Does nothing happen?

    Hmmm, not good. Does sounds like the latch is the problem, stuck in the closed position. Just in case it's somehow electronics related, although the manual release should still work if that was the case, maybe worth disconnecting the battery for a bit to see if it makes a difference. If not then I'm a bit stumped as to what to suggest. To get into the trim of the tailgate it needs to be open.
