Fuel flap stuck

Hi Folks, just encountered the first problem with the car...the petrol flap won't open even after I've pulled the release lever down by the drivers seat.

Has anyone experienced this before and have a easy fix ?

Thanks in advance

****Update****

Sorted it, needed someone to pull the lever whilst I popped my credit card in the gap.
The problem was the (cheap looking) Spring wasn't open enough to push the flap open, a minor adjustment later and problem solved.

Glad you got It sorted. It just goes to show that sometimes a bit of perseverance and common sense goes a long way 👍
