Abnormal noises should always be looed at, especially if it is engine related. A screechning noise can mean a loose belt or a failing bearing and I would suggest checking the drive belts tension and condition for a start.

Took the car to the garage and it requires a new starter and a new ignition switch. The car was completely dead when the ignition was turned but the electrics were fine etc. Thanks for the reply
