its common for the lock mechanisum to fail on the estate,but without testing for power to the lock ect its hard to say,is there not a manual release button under the tailgate lifter,above the numberplate.

Hi
Get into the trunk via the rear seat. Remove the panel on the tailgate. Pull the cable that the 'electrics' would have pulled to release the lock. Put up a photo of the electrics and the lock.

Hi
Seems like a central locking issue.
Try a different central locking key fob.
Try disconnecting the car battery for a few minutes to reset the alarm/central locking system.
jaf
