Degraded Enclosure and now RAID problems

With one of the Poweredge 2950 servers here I am getting this error from
the nagios openmanage plugin:

Physical Disk 1:0:4 [Dell ST3300555SS, 300GB] on ctrl 0 needs attention:
Foreignbr/Logical Drive /dev/sdb [RAID-5, 836.63 GB] needs attention:
Degradedbr/Enclosure 0:1:0 [Backplane] on controller 0 is Degraded

When looking through open manage it doesn't give me much information just a
lot of yellow triangle symbols and when looking at the Physical Disk
properties what is worrying is this:

Capacity278.88GBUsed RAID Disk Space0.00GBAvailable RAID Disk Space278.88GB

Does anyone have any experience of this and what can be done about it?
