A check for play in the wheel bearing and maybe a brake strip down sounds needed.

It could be front or rear brakes causing this.
Thanks for the swift reply Dave.

I am pretty much illiterate when it comes to cars! I think I know how to check the bearings, is the stripping of the brakes something a novice can do? I think I saw a thread on here with handy pics but still looked beyond my usual (topping up oil and such!).
