Any advice would be gratefully received. 

We went to sell our car on Motorway.co.uk however the sale fell through. It then came to our attention that the dealer has taken finance out against our car despite never having purchased it. He was able to do this from the information Motorway passed to him at the point of him winning the purchase bid. It never went further than this as the sale was cancelled and the car is still in our possession along with the V5. We are now stuck as we can't sell the car with outstanding finance and the finance company have been very little help due to Data Protection.  

Unsure where what rights we have or where to turn to as it's never something we've experienced before.
