water leak 147 bootlid

I'm finding that after the 147 has been out in the rain the plastic liner inside the bootlid has quite an amount of water in it. That way when i open the boot it drains out the bump stops and backwashes back out the op of the lid onto the parcel shelf (or my head) Is there a really daft obvious place where this stuff is getting in , in the first place and if it's a known problem then how should i be draining out please.

Alfa 147

A bit late, but hey. Had this problem too, and after pouring water on the boot door more than I like to admit, I found it was leaking from behind the lamps. First I thought it was the foam between the lamp and the door but it turned out that it was a gap where the metal is pressed together behind the lamp. A bit of silicon in the gap fixed this. Started to notice this is the case all around the car, so should one have a leak he should keep a eye out for this sort of thing.
