It could be frozen, but I've never come it on these.

If its under warranty, back to the dealer.

Alternatively get into the boot via the back seat and use a 10mm spanner to undo the 2 bolts that hold the lock mechanism in place. With some wiggling to you should be able to open the tailgate with the mechanism attached and have a look.

He boot button operates a short lever that operates the mech - there's not much to go wrong, and if its been lined as it should at each service its unlikely to fail, so I would suspect freezing on the first instance.

Tried it tonight and it opened without issue - so hopefully it was just frozen, its a 2007 model - which I brought in a private sale (no warranty) - it does have full service history. How can i lubricate the lock to prevent it seizing, and what products should I use...?

As the tailgate glass is direct to rubber i would put a smear of vaseline or spray some silicone spray on tailgate rubber to stop them freezing together. I do all my door seals in the winter to stop them sticking/freezing
