Clio Brakes Grinding Noise


I have a Renault Clio S X Reg 1.4 Petrol
Over the past few months i have hade an occasional problem with a grinding noise on the breaks, it 1st occured when I did emergency stops and then came into my normal breaking routine. It would only happen occasioanlly though and was worse when we had the snow a few weeks ago, but only when I was driving through it, it is also quite noticeable when I start up of a morning but will go away once I get a couple of minutes into my journey.

Today I took it to a garage and have had 300 worth of work done replacing both back drums and shoes and both discs and pads on the front, i don't think the mechanic noticed any other problems otherwise he would have said, but I'm still getting the grinding noise every now and then.

Does anyone have any idea what it could be?
