Try adjusting it? It may not be engaging on the catch properly.

Two ways to adjust :

There are two rubber blocks on the edges of the boot lit. Screw those in or out to get the shut line with the rear wings correct.

Remove the carpet behind the rear lights. The catch has two bolts. Slacken those off a little an move the catch up or down until you get the lid engaging correctly.

It engages the catch but then you hear the solenoid releasing it open again and the govebox switch is not obstructed by anything so i am thinking either its the relay or a faulty switch ?.

I had this, I went to the car one night and the release was continualy activating. My cure was to remove the globe box switch and clean the contacts and copper tracks . Its very easy to dismantle.

How easy is it to remove the switch, do i have to remove the glovebox from the dash first?.
