It's open!

Dermel and crowbar. No damage to the tailgate.

New lock and striker bar to search for now and we are good as new.

Thanks for all the help folks.

I have messaged a few scrap yards, I will find it. Got a genuine lock so all good.

Shame you had to cut stuff but it must be a relief to get the thing open! Don't forget to fully test the new lock once it is fitted before closing the tailgate. ;) You need to close the catch on the lock with a screwdriver through both positions (safety and fully closed) with the tailgate still open to see that the remote unlocks properly and the handles open the tailgate.
