Diesel leaking

Got a small leak of diesel that is dripping from the back of the right-hand-side under-guard plastic panel. Seems to be coming from under the driver's seat area.
Before I get it taken to my local garage - anyone got any ideas please? Or had a similar problem
Car drives fine and no warning lights.

If it's leaking from under the car then it's likely to be the fuel line

the have fuel lines one suply other a return pipe, supply line goes to the passengers side rear of engine ie square black filter these have a knack of leaking where the pipe joins the filter as this point has a slide in part to rear of filter, iff leakes here they allow fuel to run down the pipe and look like leaking from under the floor,, unless someone has hit the pipes that run under the car,, the return pipe goes from the high pressure fuel pump drivers side rear of engine right hand drive
