Have you tried to hold a slight turn of the wheel as you turn the key?
Yes, and perhaps really try to move the wheel side to side as you try to turn the key.

it happened to me once, i have '97 gtv, the service guy took out the ignition barrel out and put it right back in and the problem solved.. he couldnt understand what the problem was.. he said that it works with some kind of magnets, and they may be problem for a while... hope you can solve it as quickly and easily as i did...

Ignition Problems

I have spoken to a vechile locks smith who is coming down to break the lock remove the barrel and start again it will proberly need a new lock carrier which is £105.26 + vat and 2 hours labour to refit, however the upside is I can keep all of my original ocks and not spend hundreds and hundreds of £££££ to get the car back on the road, thanks for your email it cheeried me up no end.
