Thanks for the warm welcome much appreciated.

Thanks for getting back to me so quickly. It happens most of the time now from getting 2 20mph. There may/may not be another noise when I brake I will take more notice 2moz. I don't think it changes with steering left/right. Still occurs in wet/dry weather. The car is 6yrs old low mileage. Hope this helps

place to start
is it regularly serviced has the noise started near to the last service??
is there any annoying lights on the dash that the tree freshener is covering
has anything happened recently even a light bump on the back??

to be honest your best bet is to take it to your local little mechanic you know and ask his/her opinion
or the place you get it serviced if you have a good relation with them
but not a main dealer as the £££ signs light up before they help you if your not carefull

You should tell us the make and model of your car.
If it has pads on the rear, it could be that they are getting low and, the squealers (audible wear indicators) are touching the discs.
It could be a lot of other things too but, it needs to be looked at.

The Laguna has been in production for twenty years now and there are many different models.
Which one do you have?

Do lets know if it has discs or drums on the back......either type is unlikely to be stripped and cleaned during servicing, just a visual inspection of the pad / shoe lining thickness (the latter being done through a peep hole in the back plate - nowhere near good enough.)
There's a good chance that the linings are coming away from the shoes, if its a drum system.
(The large nyloc nut securing the drum on these can be reused twice, by the way.)

If it needs new pads (and it's been squealing) then most of that cost will be for new rotors (discs) as the pads will have been worn down to the metal (that's what the chafing noise was) and will have scored the discs.

2007 to now sounds about right for new rotors anyway (My car is a 2007 and I've had new rotors).

The problem is exacerbated because manufacturers can no longer use asbestos for the pad (the replacement compound is much harder and wears the disc more).
