I can hear water in the sills of my car - how do I drain it?

I have a 2011 Vauxhall Insignia 2.0 CDTi SRi and can hear water movement apparently coming from within the nearside sills? Is this possible, why is it there and how do I resolve this issue? Are there any water drainage points?

It will be in the door bottoms. The protective wax inside is probably blocking the drain holes. Poke them out with a wooden kebab stick (wooden so you don't damage the paint and promote rust.)
