Sadly not an uncommon problem on the Clio and it is also known for the brake linings to come away from the shoes. Replacement shoes and a good clean of the drums may help. It is also important the shoes and handbrake cable be correctly adjusted

I have seen this occur were a lazy mechanic adjusts the handbrake cable in an attempt to adjust the rear brakes instead of releasing the handbrake cable adjustment - setting the rear shoes up correctly and then adjusting the cable to suit
