OK I have to ask.. what is an N/S wheel.
I'll second that, as an American. We. Don't. Use. The. Terms "nearside" or "offside." To decypher those terms, we have to remember what side the steering is for Brits (right), then therefore which side of the road they drive on (left), then which side would be "near" the kerb curb (left) or "off" or away from the it (right). Way too much work for us. :)

If you're a Brit, and you want to be easily understood by Americans, then you need to use terms that everyone understands. "Driver's side" or "passenger side," when the matter has to do with which side the steering wheel is on; or "left" or "right" when referring to the outside of the vehicle; or steering-wheel-agnostic features.

Of course, for everyone, that assume you're facing forward. Don't open the bonnet hood, look at the engine from the front, then say the battery is at the right...

I reckon I might just have to live with it :-/
Well, no. It's just that it could be a whole lot of things.

I know you've had a mechanic look at it. But have you lifted the wheel up, and spun it by hand to see whether anything's rubbing? That speed should be easy enough to duplicate by hand-spinning...

Could be a tiny stone that got caught between the brake disc and the dust shield... but that would be a super-loud screeching. And your mechanic should have found that.

Wheel bearings going bad? But ditto...

Possibly a wheel bearing going bad after all...? With weight on or off it, it would sound differently... or no noise at all.

Like when you're putting lateral force on the bearing, and it starts making noise...

Still just a guess...
