Renault grand Scenic III - electronic parking break

Two questions.

First, is there a way to turn it off? I parked on a sloping car park and then discovered that I was not far enough forward in the space (the GS is a lot longer than my previous car). With a manual handbrake I would have just loosened the parking break and let it roll forward a bit, but I had to start the engine, put it in gear and bring up the clutch, then break quite hard as this made it move forward quite quickly. Is there a way to do this in the Grand Scenic III?
(btw the electronic handbrake is great for normal driving, and with the "hill assist" make hill starts a doddle)

Second, is there an emergency manual brake? I was once in a car where the hydraulic cylinder failed and I lost both breaking circuits. I was not going fast and stopped on the handbrake. I don't know what would happen if you put the electronic brake on at speed, I guess either the electronics would prevent you or the wheels would lock!

You can't turn it off and it is a pain in the type of situation that you describe.
I had cause to move my car with a flatish battery the other day after it had been stood for a couple of months. I couldn't do it as the HB would not disengage without the engine running.

There is no manual brake except the handle in the boot, which is no good if your in the driving seat.

Operating the HB in motion is possible, but you'd need to be able to keep pulling it
