Its normal for BX to sink to the floor overnight - but - naturally not normal (may be common) for them to leak.

If its a front strut area that's leaking the first thing to check is the strut return pipes. There's loads of info about them and the struts on here.

Basically the LHM from the strut can return 2 ways - either past its seals and back through the return pipes or back through the height corrector. There are 2 rubber pipes going from the strut to the return system (2 small steel stubs on or near the chassis) and probably these pipes have rotted.
