clinking noise - front drivers side wheel

Hi - there is a clinking sound as the wheel goes round. Its nothing on the wheel itself as it still did it with the space saver on following a puncture. Its getting louder, any ideas? Thanks

does it click in a straight line or only when turning in one direction only?

possible driveshaft damage if a rubber boot has torn. but parents forrestor did this too and the pads were just sticking in caliper a bit

cheers- it did it all the time- straight line / turning / braking

I had the brakes looked at and a new set of pads cured the problem, though im not sure i needed them. Garage wanted to fit new disks as well as they said the noise was still occuring after new pads fitted. At this point i started to doubt their honesty as I knew the disks were 75% ok. I asked them to leave the disks and went to collect. Low and behold everything was fine.
