My rear footwell is constantly creating itself a small lake, so watching this with interest. Have unblocked all the drains/scuttle so no idea where mine is getting in, so can't help you OP  :-[. Usually the driver's footwell only when scuttle blocked. My driver's footwell is fine, but rear passengers behind driver is sodden.
Scuttle blocked.

Water drains to the lowest point...ie the rear footwell on the Omega.

Can also be rust related and would recommend removing the rear carpet until you find the leak. Failure to do so will result in needing the floor welding in the near future  ;)

Scuttle drains have been thoroughly cleaned on regular basis, I am suspecting a rusty hole somewhere is the issue on the firewall. And yes, carpet is out, as you say, for rust /mould prevention!

I had similar recently. Traced it to a misplaced grommet down below the pollen filter housing. Removed all carpets and foam underlay on n/s of car. The foam stuff is at least 4 inches thick up near the bulkhead so needs to come out to be dried. It took weeks to dry all mine out properly. Reinstalled it all today. Its a pita job, but essential if theres water under there. It will sit there and rot the floorpan if left.

Bulkhead repairs are in restoration territory  :-\

Exactly the same area as mine was but worse.

If you take the front wheel off and look in the arch where all the panels meet, you will find a small hole there. You can patch that from outside as a temp thing until the weather warms up a bit for a proper look. Just treat the inside rust for now to stop it spreading

Yes Iansoutham, there's a hole there and I can see right out trough it. I just came back from an older fella who owns a bodyshop and he said it needs to be patch welded. Two days work he said. The same guy who replaced rear panels and wheellarces last year. I'm taking Omega there on monday morning.
Thanks for your help guys.
One of the reasons I'm still kepping to Omegas is this forum.
Thanks :y

easier than external bodywork though. But it underlines the need to look at the whole car when contemplating just patching up some frilly sills. It's why I decided not to do mine last year.

An update on this thread.
Leak sorted out, rust cut out and patched/welded, all nice and ok BUT
thick sponge-like insulation material under the driver's footwell has disintegrated into small pieces and is unusable now.
What material can I use instead?
