Why is water getting into my footwell?

My 2013 Ford Mondeo which I have owned for three years and never had any problems with, has recently got water in the footwell on the driver's side. There is no coolant leak. Any idea where this is getting in?

It will be rainwater coming in via the pollen filter because the drains either side of the bulkhead vent well are blocked and there is nowhere else for it to go. Get yourself a teapot spot brush and try to clean out the drains either side of the vent well. You may have to unscrew the grille at the base of the windscreen to get at them.
