No and the battery's under the seat anyway. Locksmith or smash a window.

Do you have breakdown recovery if so check to see if it covers this, or call an auto locksmith out and he should be able to get you in quickly as this sort of info will not be posted on an open forum. Or as the van should not be dead locked do you have window cover on your insurance?

Is the lock damaged or is the key badly worn?

It might be best to check for windscreen cover on your insurance, if not a local windscreen fitter and phone then first to see which is the cheapest window to break, as you van should not be double locked unless you locked it by the key which sounds like you will not have done, then you can open only the front doors by the handle, but have you locked the keys in the back and do you have a bulk head fitted?
