Sounds like the rod that attaches from the door lock to the handle mechanism may have come off. there is only a small clip that keeps this in place and it mat have broken. or a bushing within the locking mechanism itself may have worn out. I would check the rods first there may be up to 3 of them. 1 goes to locking mechanism near the window (in and out. lock with key and lift button), if electric locks, one may go to locking solenoid and the door release which goes to interior door handle and outside door hangle
You can put a locking hasp lock on the door and the door frame that you engage when you are inside. Or block the door with heavy furniture, but if it is your only exit, it would not be safe. The easiest thing would be to buy and install a metal storm/security door on the outside, making sure that the hinges are not accessible at the outside of the house.
Sounds stupid , but push door closed from outside , then operate rear lock from inside to LOCK door then pull to unlock , I have had this problem when people have pulled outside handle as central locking is still bimbling along . Result one door that does not open using either handle nor does it lock / unlock with key / alarm / central lcoking system :)
If the door won't open from the outside when you press the handle, you need to take apart the interior part of the door and the mechanism. There is a barrel that slides in a groove that has jumped out causing the door to not open from the outside. If you have auto locks they will not work either. Only opening the door from the inside will work since that pushed the lock from another position. Hope that helps.
