Sorry to hear your appliance is having issues, please stand by while I find the answer for you, this is not an immediate service however I will try and respond as soon as possible.
To confirm you're seeing a leak around where the hose meets the service valve?

It is around the filling point where you fill with water
Expert:  James replied 8 days ago.

This suggests the boiler seal has failed and venting out the steam being produced, in reality taking into accoun the age this would not be an economical repair as parts are no longer sold for your model of iron, and as such suggest you consider replacement rather than reapir

It was a pleasure to assist you today. I hope the above answers the question. If you have any follow up questions then please let me know.
