Front end noise

I have a nov 2003 mini one 98,000 miles, great history, no transmission noise,
but since being MOT'd a week ago i can hear a sort of white noise coming from the front of the car when i reach 30 mph, it gets louder as i go faster but is not in sync with the engine revs, it has the sort of sound of a failing wheel bearing but does not get louder or courser when turning in any direction. Any help or suggestions would be appreciated......

If it helps, it sounds like someone switches on a hairdryer once i get up to about 27-30 mph.......

We have exactly the same problem at the minute, I don't suppose you have been able to find out what was making the noise? If anyone could please shed some light on this, that would be fantastic.

We have a 2002 r50 Cooper. 80,000 miles.
It's a loud humming/droning noise like lex described that only gets louder the faster you travel. There is no noise on tickover at all and the noise does not go away when you depress the clutch.

Changed both front wheel bearing assemblies (70each inc vat) and now noise has gone
If you plan on doing this make sure you have some wd40 on hand as the 4 hub bolts were caked in crud and a right bugger to remove, probably why they give you 4 new ones in the kit, anywho this has been such a nuisance problem and now it's solved. Hope this helps someone in the future.
