It is most definately a broken ABS ring. This was indeed the problem with my son-in-laws Clio.
If you jack the car up and remove the wheel, could be either side of course, you will be able to see the ABS ring on the outer CV Joint of the driveshaft. You will need to carefully check all around the toothed ring for any teeth missing or visible cracks on the ring.
In my case the o/s ABS ring was actually rotten through at one point and lifting off the CV joint.
Too difficult a repair for my "kerbside motors" so I had the local garage replace both front rings for good measure along with a new set of discs and pads. Job done.
Repair cost was around £150 including parts though I must add the local garage owner is a personal friend of mine which I'm sure helped a bit.
I must apologise for not updating this forum post but was short of time at the time in question and then it slipped my mind.
Merry Christmas everyone.
