If it's similar to the one on the new C4 Cactus, lifting the plastic lever operates a cable which pulls the safety catch from the driver's side (RHD).

You mat be able to get a thin screwdriver through the grille to release it by moving towards the driver's side of the car.

If you were the original owner, you should have breakdown cover for 3 years; cal them out.

Hope this helps.

Thank you
Have now worked it out
The cable had come away from the catch, so use a bamboo stick to push catch from off side of car
Best wishes and stay safe

Hi jonnybikes, before I saw that you'd fixed it, I popped out and had a look at mine this morning - I couldn't see any obvious way of releasing it if the cable had become broken or detached, so I'll remember your trick in case it happens to me! ;)
