Shake ya sterring wheel from side to side and try turning ya key. The lock could be stuck and needs to be freed up. This should do the trick.

Rear left tyre is locked due to constant rain and wet crossings. Have taken wheel off and tapped but still not released. Any other suggestions. Have also locked and unlocked handbrake to no...

I think you will find that the brake shoes are locking the wheel due to the wheel cylinders not being able to return fully. On trucks that use hydrolic brakes you can find a small wheel type adjuster in the backing plate. Usually 1 per cylinder and theres often 2 cylinders per wheel. Try to de-adjust the wheel cylinders to free the wheel. This wil only allow the wheel to turn. After a brake aplication u might find the wheel is back to the original situation. So i suggest removing the brake drum and investigating further.

1994 gmc back left tire break leak

Most likely rellted to the rear wheel cylinder. You need to remove the tire, probably replace the brake shoes if they are wet with fluid, wipe down brake drum with carb or brake cleaner, install new wheel cylinder and put everything else back together. Wheel cylinder is available through most auto parts outlets. Probaby less than $15.

The break small cylinder is leaking at the right side back.

just keep in mind brakes are a saftey item.
if you could have both rear wheels and drums off then dis assemble linings then remove wheel cylinder and replace, assemble up the same as other side to copy. borrow some maintenance repair books from library or google procedures from manuals with drum brakes all have same principals.some front wheel drive vehicles have wheel bearings that need repacking with grease when removing drum and hub as one and more importantly have the do up nut by feel rather than torque up to setting hub nut and some drums come straight off from hub leaving bearings and hub on vehicle.
garage jack, saftey stands, wheel brace to remove wheel nuts, brake hose clamp, side cutters(pliers),flat head screw driver, hammer, socket set, spanner set,mostly 10mm ring and open ended spanner for wheel cylinder
