Clio 1.2 '51 Grinding Brakes

Hi all, recently changed my front discs and pads as i could hear a terrible grinding noise under braking and found my discs were in bad shape but this hasnt made a difference so i took the car to a garage to check my rear brakes (as i dont want to mess around with drums) the only problem they found was my master cylinder was leakiing so they changed that for me and claimed the grinding had gone yet on the way home the noise was back... any ideas? My drums and shoes still have plenty of life left in them.

If you can feel the brake pedal kicking about when it grinds, check the ABS reluctor rings for splits/corrosion.
Front one are most prone to falling apart.
