Weird aircon noise


Have a 58 plate clubbie and just started getting a wired noise when the aircon is on, so looking for some advice.

When the fan is on without the aircon, all is fine. With the aircon on, I get a strange whirring noise that changes with the revs. Even more strangely, dipping the clutch seems to also have an effect. When the start/ stop kicks in and the engine is off, then the noise goes away - not immediately but after a second or two.

The stealer wants 50 just to have a look, so would appreciate opinions before going down that route.
