Thank you very much.
I actually took the easy route and took a feed from the front console cigar lighter,this meant that the key needed to be in the ignition to open and close the boot but I was happy with that.
It was pretty easy taking the boot panel off and running the cable under the carpet.
I used a local ground cable next to the lock and just ran 1 cable for the feed .
You may take more time and find a power source which is active when the doors are opened
