It only last about 30 secs to a minute but it was horrible. I haven't a clue what it was, anyone have any ideas?

Brakes seizing?

I though a bloody wheel was going to fall off. :(

Have your mechanic check the right rear brake.
Mine was making a horrible noise before I took it in and found that one of the R/R caliper pistons hadn't retracted and was rubbing on the rotor.
Didn't take long to wear the pad all the way down to metal.
Fortunately my rotor was OK but I did have to pay a chunk of money to replace the pad and caliper (I'm outside the warranty period).
Good luck!

If it's gone and hasn't come back, it might be a stone stuck in a caliper, rubbing on the disk (rotor).

The stone will wear away and then leave or shatter, but it will be noisy until that happens.
