if its coming from near the wheel its probably an upper or lower balljoint and if its coming from the engine bay its probably your power steering pump or something related to it.

Do You hear that sound only when turning steering wheel max left or max right? If so this sound is normal, coming out from steering pump

The sound is to loud to just be the power steering pump I dont think it's the power steering pump in that case making that noise but is there anyway of telling if the power steering pump is on the way out just so I can rule that out been the problem cheers

Try some fresh oil in it. Suck out whats in the reservoir & replace it with ATF DexIII

Try putting your head under bonnet and gat someone to turn the wheel full lock, if it's the pump it will whine when stationery??
