Hi irish. We have the same noise & apparently if you push hard on brake pedal & noise stops, but then comes back again, it's the vacuum pump. Nothing to worry about immediately tho T:

If noise goes away when brakes pressed it is indeed the vacuum pump.
You can replace the little rod in the vacuum pump. If you get it early enough this will cure the problem, if not you will have to replace the whole pump.
Rod is about £25-£30. pump about £180-£200
Easy enough to do, you have to remove the pump. 2 bolts one of which is dificult to take off. Replace rod and use grease to hold it in place when reassembling.
Good idea to replace seal seal when doing this job.
Hope this helps.
