56 Plate Megane Cabriolet Fuel Flap Jammed

I have a 56 plate Megane 1.6 petrol convertable and the fuel flap won't open.
I have tried repeatedly locking and unlocking the doors etc with the key fob but it's still stuck. I've lifted the carpets in the boot and searched for an emergency pull release but can't locate one anywhere. I've also felt around the bodywork on the inside where the fuel filler pipe is to see if I can feel a wire or a cable but still I can't find anything. I have removed the outer flap so the outside of the black plastic fuel cap is exposed but this still doesn't allow me any access to release it. The low fuel light is already on so I can't risk driving it anywhere other than to a petrol station to fill up with fuel, if only I could get the flap released? I have contacted a couple of Renault Dealers and all the help they will give is "bring it into our garage"
Can anybody please help me out of this predicament?
Kind Regards Phil
