When the battery is inserted correctly, the notch in the battery slips over the peg in the battery compartment so inserting the battery should take very little force.

When inserting the battery upside down force will be required to jam the battery over the peg.

The good news is the peg is only a few millimetres tall so once you have lifted the battery a little it should come out easily.

The suggestions above (tape, glue) should work. (Provided you hold the catch open at the same time)

Brilliant! thank you very much for the photo. Is there no other places the slot holds onto the battery? I was looking at the sides of the battery as they have grooves in them too.
So far the duck tape method hasnt worked so Ive ordered some krazy glue to see what I can do with that.

No, the battery moves quite freely except for the last 3mm (1/8th inch).

Try:

1/ clean the top of the battery

2/ attach two pieces of tape as shown, grip nearest the battery and pull with a sudden jerk.

Might work.

Thank you to everyone who posted on here. fantastic advice!
Good news. I managed to get the battery out with some superglue and a lot of force!
bad news. the camera doesn't turn on now?!
the white latch that holds the battery in is damaged and doesn't work now. will that have any effect on the battery?
I placed a thin piece of metal down the sides to see if there was any latches before, does anyone think the battery contact points might be damaged?

Is the camera not turning on because the white latch is not holding the battery down far enough.
You could try to put a piece of foam with sticky back (like used for mirror dampers or light seals) on the inside of the battery door.
That might hold the battery down enough to make a good contact.
If you don't have that foam, try putting something in there to push the battery down to see if it will work.
