Ooh crumbs Penfold! This is the only slight downside of backplates. They can be a water trap and capillary action can spread it, while being really hard to see.
That looks pretty convincingly terminal. The burn marks on the backplate are horrific, there was some amps flowing where they shouldn't there.
I normally see it trapped in the top edge though rather than the bottom like yours. Do you know what sort of leak it was?
