Check the steering lock, rotate the steering wheel while turning the key to get the tumbler or whatever it is to become unwedged.

This has been a common issue among alot of the Foci... there is a problem with the locking cylinders in the car. Its a fairly simple fix that takes about an hour or so if you do it yourself.

well there different ways to possibly get one last single turn of the ignition and if you can turn it ever so slightly you can remove it easily if not you have to drill the area of the key channel to drop all the tumblers out once out vaccum the debris out and you should be able to turn it to release it

And Mike my man :D I spam yer name so much Ive actually memorized your name/forum name/and 1800 ford parts number LOL
