Clio II Whirring Sound When Braking

I recently purchased a 2002 Clio MK2 1.2 16v and have found that sometime when I apply the brakes to come to a stop there is a strange 'whirring' sound that seems to come from the engine bay (just infront of the driver to be specific). It sounds like an electric motor spinning, sort of like what you hear sometimes when you try to start a car with a flat battery. The brakes seem to work fine, just a bit concerned as to what the noise is.
If anyone has had the same issue or has any ideas, please let me know!
