Meg II Brakes just started Howling...?

Hi everyone. I have had my car for a few months now, recently when reversing the brakes howl. I can only describe it as the sound old buses make when braking! It is intermittent and if i let off and then brake again it goes away.

When i bought the car i had all the brakes checked and copper greased. Is it something i should be worrying about safety wise? Or is it just an annoying problem.

I wouldn't worry too much about the horrendous graunching sound you get when braking whilst reversing. If it happens when braking whilst going forward, have your brakes checked over. Squealing is very common on Meg 2 brakes but can be controlled by regular cleaning and careful use of copper grease.
