Urgent Help - Cant get into boot on my 740i

Got an old (1987) 740i
locks have been playing up lately with the central locking not working 100% when turning the key in lock.

ANyway went to access the boot today and stuck key in boot lock as normal turned and nothing, well the central locking clicks in the car and the car door locks open but the boot is still shut.

Tried accessing boot from inside but doesnt appear to be a way in, there is a centre section in the backseat for long objects (skis ?) but not big enough to get into boot.

ANy pointers about how to get in to sort it ?
