Can you get through from the inside to pull the emergency lever??? You may be able to pull the cable from inside under the seats if you are lucky this should pop the boot, if not I'm stuck...

Are your number plate lights working?

Sounds like water in the circuitry causing a short, or possibly a dodgy connection, my five had one with the BL they came and went as they pleased.

Best place to start would be to look at the wiring loom that is covered by a rubber boot betwen the boot lid and the body. Common problem with frayed wiring.
