The answer was to cut a 1” x 12” strip of 25 thou rigid, flexible transparent PVC, as used for covering garden frames etc. It slipped in nicely, exactly level with the top of the arm rest. It worked on the third attempt with a reassuring click.
More surprisingly, not only does the door lock and unlock on central locking, and opens from inside, but the outside handle also works - though it doesn’t feel right and its use will be discouraged for now.
So thanks to all for your advice, and this tip can be archived for anyone whose door is childlocked and refuses to open!
