2008 Hatchback will not open

I can hear the solenoid click but I can not get my 2008 Mini hatchback to open.
2008 does not have mechanical over ride. How do I access the latch mechanism with the hatch closed?

Not knowing much about Minis and being new on here, but shouldn't your manual tell you how to do this manually?
