I noticed this morning my Focus has started leaking something from the engine area...
It doesnt look like oil - its a clear liquid substance, any ideas?

You had your air-con on? If so likely to be that.

sounds like air con

Perhaps some clarification on these replies, air con can cause condensation to form and drip from under the car.
If this is what you have it is not necessarily a fault, I believe it depends on humidity levels or something.

Exactly what I thought when I thought when I first saw it. It was the aircon as it takes moisture from inside the car and has to get rid of it somehow!

its not moisture from inside the car, its the heat from the engine hitting the cool pipes from the air con causing condensation which then drips onto the floor.
if you dont have air-con it will either be windscreen washer fluid or coolant....
