OK - battery's been on charge all night and now shows 13.56v when stood on the bench.

Back on the car and with the multi meter between the positive post and the positive lead I get a reading of 113.5mA - is this too high?

With the car started and at idle I get 14.41v accross the battery, so alternator and charging circuit are OK - I guess?

Checked all interior lights and all external lights and can't see anything that is left on, in fact I have switched all interior lights to off to be on the safe side.

Glovebox light? Don't think I've got one of those, can't see anything anyway.

Have to go out now but intend to remove fuses one at a time, as suggested by madnoel10 above, to see if I can't reduce the 113.5mA reading when the car is switched off.
