Trapped Water and Sloshing

My new style 06 reg clio has some trapped water that sloshes around when turning bends and such. I can see where it is, it is in the void under the grills, the area between the engine bay and the wipers, and just underneath the bonnet overhang, if you can understand where I mean. It is not a major problem as water can enter this area, it is just I wonder if there is a drain point, or any way that I can get the water out as it is annoying me. Any assistance would be helpful.

There should be a drain in the bottom of the void,I suspect that it has a rubber drain funnel that has blocked up.I would sort out the problem sooner rather than later as it will gradually fill up with any heavy rain and possibly start coming in the car.It could also get into the vehicle electrcs and cause mayhem.

I'm not sure how you'd access the drain as I haven't worked on any new shape Clios yet,but usually the void slopes down either side to it and the drain just allows the water to escape under the car.

I'd rather push my Alfa than drive a BMW....
