Sos Help Needed Pls!

I need some SOS help, sorry if it's a sticky, but I gotta ask...
So, my st24 hatch, is locked... but with the keys in the boot... I was an idiot, I was fixing the boot lock, and in the testing process i locked the central locking, and the keys were in the boot when I closed it down... realized it after, but obviously at that point is sort of screwed...
I just got the car, it only came with one set... Breakdown cover and locksmith are no options at the moment, as I don't have AA and they messing me around, locksmith charges unreasonable amounts.. So I'm trying to sort it without them. Smashing the window I try to keep as a last resort.
I had that problem before in my mk2 GLX, the guy came, pulled on the door, put a wire thing in, hooked on the door opener, pulled it, opened the central locking. I tried that, manage to pull the door opener, but it does not open for some reason... tried on driver's side and passenger side...
The only luck is, it's on my drive way

Afraid it will have to be a locksmith , you may have dead locked it.
someone also said I might be able to unlock it with another ford key... according to him, he saw this happen before.
could that work? I mean I know is a sensitive subject, but I really want to sort it without having to pay 100s of pounds...

How old is you car?
Locksmith charged us around 120 to do it. He stuck an electric probe into door and the central locking lifted up.

or, create a gap, try to push the seat folding releaser, fold the seat, and fish the key out...
smashing, wrenching, breaking are the last options... locksmith is just unreasonably expensive... for 120 quid i can smash the window, wrench the lock and break the tail light....

Solution: Smashed the rear light... getting another one from a guy who's breaking one. Total cost 20quid...
conclusion: never ever put the keys anywhere but my pocket, and getting 2 extra ones...
thanks for all the help
