The garage have found a fault with a car I traded in - what are my rights?

I signed and drove an Audi away from a dealer on Friday. The garage now want me to go back as they have found a fault with the trade-in car. What are my rights? My car was bought as seen.

Depends how you described the trade-in. If you said it was all okay, then you have committed a breach of contract. If you said nothing of the sort and they failed to check the car properly then they have no right to undo the deal.
