    There are many signs of water above where that screw is, get someone qualified out to check it over. The plastic parts of WB boilers are/were infamous for springing leaks so it is ver possible one has started to go.

    The circled cross head screw will be there to hold the brass fitting on to the chassis. It looks like there might be water weeping from the bass nut directly above, or it may be coming from higher up.

    Treasure the moments that you have. Savour them for as long as you can for they will never come back again.

    I think the highlighted part is the symbol for radiators ,ie heating ,the leak appears to be coming down from the brass valve in the centre of the picture ( the blue drops i presume )
    The screw they want to tighten is either  the one in the middle of the valve or the one at the bottom with the little plate attached. 
    ITS NOT EASY TO GET EVERYTHING WRONG ,I HAVE TO WORK HARD TO DO IT!
