Car when left over night battery goes flat. Remove positive battery cable battery ok starts in morning. Positive lead has 4 cables from removed them as a hole and when you gently touch it onto battery pole you can see its arcing. Removed each cable and it is the red cable (fwd r/h one) that is arcing. Everything is turned off and key removed any ideas.

That needs to be checked by a shop that can trace the circuit to find the failure. No way we can tell you without seeing and touching.
