Very recently had a new handbrake cable fitted, and very shortly afterwards, a horrible scraping/rubbing sound has been coming from the back (left?) of the car. Kind of sounds like a hacksaw. It gets faster as my car gets faster. It's worse when I turn round corners too. Could it be due to something they did with the new handbrake? Any input would be appreciated, cheers.

sounds like one of two things.
wheel bearing.
or shoes worn down.
does it sound worse also when breaking.
try jacking it up and turn the wheel with hand brake of to see could also be the drum catching where the dust plates are too

i'll jack the car up and see whats going on under there, cheers.

when i'm braking it doesn't neccessarily sound worse, just alters the sound slightly.

i'm pretty confident now that it's got something to do with the brakes/handbrake.
