It might be a stone or something stuck between your brake disc and brake disc guard. It seems to happen to my car alot. I have found that if you reverse quickly this will dislodge the offending item 90% of the time. The other way is to push the brake guard away from the disc ( with the wheel still on ) slightly to free the stone. I have found that you can over push the top of the guard which will then move the bottom of the guard onto the disc and you will end up with the same noise so be carefull.

I find this happening on a regular basis (caused by entrapped stone(s) as described above).
Normally find that reversing on full lock dislodges it.

I've had this a few times. Each time the cause has been the brake disc guards.I just push them back a bit (through the wheel spokes) and that usually cures it.
