All day today around Thetford, same on my Sons bike.

I have beed using Muc-Off bike cleaner, not the Bike Spray, just the cleaner. Is that likely to be the issue or something else?

I have IPA to clean the discs with, but what has made them squeak in the first place?

Could be adjustment but more likely the discs being "squeaky" clean

Exactly, avid/sram brakes tend to do it more than shimano but usually when cold or wet

I had the pads out today, they said Resin.

Squeak has gone from both bikes, cleaned them used some IPA on the rotors and rinsed the pads under water whilst rubbing them together.

No more squeaking.
