bonnet catch (under bonnet) wont move (bonnet stuck shut)

hi all, hope for some help

just bought a spares and repairs 2007 mini ONE 1.4.

it is smoking quite badly from the cat i believe so need to get under the bonnet to check it out.

The bonnet release catch works fine, the bonnet pops up, but the lever under the front right of the mini badge wont shift to allow to lift the bonnet

Ive done a search on google but all the related topics seem to be regarding the release cable, rather than the latch on the bonnet itself

has anyone experienced this or have any solutions? Thanks in advance!!
