Engine squealing when cold???

Ay up,

Wonder if someone can diagnose my problem. 156 1.8 ts when starting up on a cold engine and pulling off shortly after it is making a horrific squealing noise only when not accelerating. Noise goes when up to regular temp.

Is this simply the fan belt and is this cheap to fix? Hope its nothing to serious!

Cheers in advance.

What ever it is its the extra load put on the battery through the alternator, so the belt would need changing that would be the first choice.
