523iSE Gear selector


I have problem with my Gear selector as it has locked in P Park and I cannot select any other gear. At the same time my key has also locked in the ignition and I cannot take out the key from the ignition. I have found out that this is a safety feature, but cannot find out how to solve the problem.

If anyone has had a similar problem, please let me know how you solved it, as I cannot lock the car either.
