Could it be an air leak on the brake servo rubber diaphraghm? I had similar on an old Pug 306.

Has it had a new cambelt recently?

More info needed, please.

Mileage? Belt service history? Is the whistle frequency proportional to the engine revs? With the bonnet open and the engine idling, can you still hear it? If so, where does it seem to come from.....and does it stop if you spray the auxiliary belt with water?

Come back and answer all these, Chris, and you might get some helpful hints.
