Scrapping noise from both wheels.
recently had pads changed but it was there before that.
Hearing it at 30 mph only and after 15 miles or so driven.
strange as it was there whilst going to a show but not there driving back.
have had car jacked up and no wobble either way.
had wheels off and no sign of anything obvious catching and discs look ok to my untrained eye but you can hear both wheels catching/scraping.whilst wheels off and turned by hand.
have recorded it but no idea how to get the vid posted

Have a look behind the discs, probably the tin dust shield is touching the disc somewhere, most likely at the bottom where it has a joggle in it, just bend it back out of the way.

If it suddenly breaks, go back to the last thing that you did before it broke and start looking there :)

The disks don't look great if I'm honest. There should be no rust 'lip' on the outer edge of the disc. The braking surface should extend right to the end of the disk! If you've recently fitted new pads, I suspect the old ones had worn to adopt the badly corroded disc. The new ones are now contacting that rusty lip during wheel rotation & braking (clearance between disc and pad when the brake is not engaged is tiny - 1-2mm tops) You'll probably find that the rear face of the disc is the same if not worse. A new pair of discs from CarParts4less or euro Car parts shouldnt cost the earth. As a general rule of thumb discs should be changed at every other Pad change :)
