Hi Ian

Looks like you have something faulty

Its either going be a visit to a auto electrician or if you handy with a multimeter  you can find it yourself

you need connect your meter in line with the battery and put it on ameter mode and monitor the amps/current

then start pulling fuses till the current/amps drop, start with anything after market thats been added

I had a similar fault on my car and it ended up been a tracker in the left hand side of the boot, did not know it was there and no paper work came with car, its backup battery had failed over the years and was causing a large drain on the car battery

also check all the modules in the boot and fuse box for water damage, common fault on the s-type's, which can cause a drain

try keeping the car on a battery charger/trickle charger to prevent further damage to the battery and other modules, low battery voltages can cause errors and damage
