use a large screwdriver, cover the end with a rag to protect your paint and lever the top rear corner of the door open enough to either 1)slip a bit of wire in to pull the inside handle to open the door or 2)something long to push to boot button.

thats how i used to do it until i got this nifty little inflatable pillow to pry the door open

^^^ how we used to do it in an un-named Ford yard. Hit the door unlock button. WIth your keys in the boot, the boot button will no doubt be easier to get to. Will take a decent piece of wire though. You can hook something into the lock and pry it up, but you will more than likely scratch it to hell trying numerous times before succeeding.

Series 2 EF's have the boot release button disabled when the keys arent in the igniton! Makes it a little harder :/

A wire from the fuse box to the switch will pop the boot. You just need to get into the car...

Yeah forgot about that. My bad! Whilst we're being technical I am pretty sure they are time delayed and not disabled when the key is removed though.

As has been said aim for the door unlock button, or pull the handle from inside. Just go easy on how much pressure you put on the door when levering it back.
