Seems to be a quiet day for Clios! not an owner myself but here's my two cents Possibly the shoes have been re-fitted without taking up the slack between the shoes and the brake drum. Normally this wouldn't matter too much as the brake is (likely) self-adjusting. My guess is that the original noise might have been part of the self-adjusting mechanism coming adrift and it is no longer operating. Just an off chance, but you could try operating the handbrake a few times which would normally take up the slack if all was well. Another possibility is that the handbrake cable was not re-connected or has come adrift/broken at the brake back-plate.
