Aluminuim back door lock stuck in the locked position

My aluminuim double glazed back door has been hard to open for some time. Now when I turn the key nothing happens apart from if freely turning round and around.Luckily the door is in the locked position but can anyone help me in advising how to get lock open so that I can replace it once the door is open.

Remove the interior side of the deadbolt and you should be able to access the deadbolt mechanism and retract it with a screw driver or left over section of the deadbolt.

A picture will help get you more directed feedback.
