Thumbs down Convertible roof stuck - not opening

Hi,
I'm having a problem with my 54 mini one convertible.

Basically the roof is jammed and won't open at all (not even into 'sunroof mode') Instead of the usual windows coming down, sunroof mode, etc, it made a few clicking sounds in the boot, then went on to make a rather loud noise as if the motor to pull the clips open and the roof back is turning but the clips aren't unclipping at the front. The sound seems to be coming from the central plastic section of the roof. I had read a lot of forums where people have reported the roof opening on just the passengers side, although mine is the complete roof that is jammed. Any ideas on what the fault could be / whether it's an easy fix?!

Thanks.
