Cannot open Scenic bonnet

1999 T Reg Scenic 1.6

I'm having trouble opening the bonnet of my 1999 Scenic. The internal release doesn't spring the bonnet open like it used to, but it does release it enough for me to get my hand under the front end. That's where I'm having trouble ...

I thought that I should then squeeze upwards on the catch inside the bonnet, but it's not budging at all. (So long since I last opened it, I can't really remember if that's the right thing to do.)

I've checked the other threads but most seem to refer to broken cables & I'm not sure that's my problem. Any advice much appreciated.
