Ford Focus water leak

My 2011 Ford Focus has developed a water leak in the boot. Any idea how I can fix this fault?

Might be through one of the seals of the complex shaped rear light clusters. Removing the side trims from the load area and spraying water over the clusters at pressure may reveal it. Alternatively it might be coming in via a broken one way cabin vent in the lower sides of the load area.
