First you need to locate where the leak is coming from? Is it pooling on the ground after refilling?

Its as tho someone has left the tap running a little, and is pooling on the road. I will have another look to find out where it is leaking from. And let you know is thats ok thanks sarah x

The only way you can have water coming from the OIL filter is if the engine block is cracked !. I suspect it is leaking higher up an running down the filter. Have a pressure test of the cooling system carried out, this will confirm where the leak is by making it stream out so you can see it better. Most garages will diagnose a problem for free in hope they get the work?
