THE BONNET RELEASE CORD IS BROKEN (BONNET END), HOW DO I GET THE BONNET OPEN?

I went to open the bonnet and heard a twang, and a thud. I realised that the cord has broken. I have elevated the front of the car however can not seem to access anything that will help open the bonnet. I have also removed the foot panel on the interior - however this is of little help as the cord broke at the other end. Please help

Best get it to a mechanic or a panel shop as the bonnet lock will have an anti intrusion panel they may be able to get a better view up on a hoist.
