Scenic leaking fuel

I have a W reg Scenic 1.6 petrol.
Everything was fine but when I filled up yesterday fuel was running out of the fuel tank.
Having run the car to get the fuel level down this has stopped but if the car is on a slope it will leak. It looks like it is coming from the top of the fuel tank and there is a smell of petrol in the car.
It has been suggested that it could be the seal on the top of the tank where it connects to the fuel pump or the fuel filler.
Does anyone else have a suggestion and how I can check to find out?
Thanks in advance.
