Door jammed


My front passenger door is jammed. The central locking is working on the rest of the doors indicating that it is not the fuse or the remote.
The inside and outside handle pull as normal when I try to open the door but they do not engage and appear to be permanently locked.
I cannot remove the panel as the door doe not open.

I have tried, in vain, WD40 on the lock and locking mechanism (by opening the rear door I could access it.

It seems that the locking mechanism is jammed around the bar/hook on the door frame.

Nothing is jammed on the door frame (umbrella, tie, paper, stick, wife...)

Any suggestions?
