    This door has started leaking worse than ever. Should there be a drip channel above the door or should I just reseal the outside with silicone?

    Yes there’s a window above ... no signs of leaking though?

    It looks very damp. I thought maybe leaking from the window above and running down the cavity

    Inspected the render earlier and there’s quite a few hairline cracks above so I’ve filled them. Failing that it could be the radiator but that would be a massive coincidence given all the rain we’ve had.
