United-Kingdom Fuel leaking out

I had trouble starting my 54 reg mini cooper yesterday and there is fuel leaking out from under the car somewhere, what could this be and is it a known fault? It was running fine until yesterday

Hi, no idea, I think towards the back, the fuel is not reaching the engine. someone is going to look at it today for me, if it's a known fault I will get it towed to a bmw dealership for repair, if not I will go local

Its an old car now, so it could be a perished rubber fuel hose or corroded metal fuel pipe or a damaged petrol tank even?
I doubt MINI will fix it for free.
