2001 Grand Espace

Hi, I hope someone might be able to help. I have a 2001 2.0 16v Grand Espace which has a strange noise coming from the rear of the cabin. It isn't very loud quite faint actually but when you notice the sound it is always there. It happens from around 20mph upwards it sounds like a whistling sound that changes in note from high to low but never gets any louder even when your doing about 70mph. I first thought it was the signal bleeper on the towbar electrics so i removed that and no change, thought it was coming through the speakers so switched off stereo, noise still there. Today when driving on a quiet road about 30mph I switched the car off and dipped clutch and the same pesky noise is still present. It's really doing my head in I just want to get rid but the wife loves it as its been a loyal vehicle in the years we've owned it and great for the kids and all their stuff.
Currently in ccts's garage:
