Thanks for the manual and trying to help.
My son's mate is an auto locksmith, and told me that when the mechanism goes, it's time for violence.
I took the pass seat out, managed to get the door card off.
I then took my angle grinder to the internal metal door skin, cut a window in it, then with a hammer and chisel smashed the lock mech up. Eventually got to the bare latch, and managed to operate it with a long screwdriver, and finally got the door open. Got a replacement lock unit from Ebay. All fitted and working again. Happy ending.

Thanks again for the help
I've just submitted a post about this and everything I tried first before I finally found out about the "violence" bit. I've just then seen your post :LOL:

Glad to hear you solved it in the end :)
