     Do not drill lock! very expensive to replace only comes as full lock set! smash a window and claim of insurance cost £50 excess.

    Have a go with coat hanger .slid it between door and glass down side of door pillar and pull the button up .bend a hook on 

    the end it does work .if he rings Vauxhall CustomerService they have a record of the key number for the car .

    If operating the door lever on the inside doesn't open the door it sounds like it is deadlocked so might have to break a window.

    Only other google can offer is these:-

    Is there any chance of prying the top of the door ajar and hooking the key off the parcel shelf? You can tape over the paintwork to protect it & use plastic or wooden wedges.

    I had this issues with a ‘98 VW Golf. Greenflag couldn’t get in. Coat hanger didn’t work. It was deadlocked as yours sounds to be.

    I had to smash a window. Smash a window in a door, get a replacement from the scrap yard, easy enough to change over and cost me £40
