T4 Post Icon scraping noise?

Have a bit of an intermittent annoying scraping noise. Seems to be coming from the front wheel area, more so from the nearside.

I notice it mostly when coming to a slow standstill. It's like off an on to the speed that the wheel are turning. It's not a terrible noise, just annoying and not right. It doesn't happen with brakes on.

Any ideas what to look for?

possibly brake caliper binding slightly so the brake pad is just touching the disc, then when you touch the brakes it's putting full pressure on it so it goes

Could be a stone lodged behind the backplate

Cheers. I suppose I will just get the wheels off and have a look.
