Soot Smell

Hi, as per subject, I have a soot smell inside the car. Looking under the bonnet there is soot over the back of the engine. I stuck my finger in the vents (front facing) and there was think black gunk.

I've suspected a leaking exhaust manifold for a while now as there is definately exhaust noise when accelerating and decelerating.

I took the heat sheild off and seen no obvious problems, loose bolts, cracks etc..

Initial thoughts anyone?

Many Thanks
