We also tried warm water over the door and lock mechanism, again no change.

So im still not in the car but i now have the bonnet open therfore gaining access to the battery, should i disconnect the battery to reset it or would this cause more problems, any ideas from here? because im felling very sad now. Typical Scottish/UK weather its snowing again.
First off, do you know for a fact that the door is unlocked?
Is the window rolling down the inch when you pull the handle?
If you know it is unlocked, smack the door with your palm next to the door handle. Then try opening the door.

If your car has battery power, then its an internal issue with the door unlocking mechanism.

Its not how fast you go, or how expensive your toys are.
Its all about how big your smile is at the end of the day that truly matters.
