Hi there

You will have to see if you can trigger the latch from under the front of the car, Try and view one that is open so you can work out the best way to access it, use a long standard screwdriver to release the latch cable pull. See if the cable is broken at the release you may be able to use a pair of pliers to pull the cable end. Also look through the grill to see if you can get at the release that way as well
