Boot wouldn't open, now won't lock

Hi all,
I've seen a few posts similar to this where a switch has been mentioned.
Basically this evening I went to open my boot and the button wouldn't go in to open it. It was if it was still locked. I unlocked the doors, locked them and unlocked them and still the same.
I then crawled into the boot to get to my screwdrivers to try and release the mechanism which was also suggested on here. It required removing the plastic cover which was really difficult at the time.
I then thought I'd try an old fashioned fix. I thumped the boot a bit around the button and at the bottom. I tried again and it opened! Then I sprayed some GT85 into the lock from underneath and closed the boot but now it won't lock...

Can anyone advise what it's likely to be in this case or anything I can try please?
