156 JTDM 150 Brake Query

My 2005 156 JTDM 150 has an intermittent 'buzzer' noise.
When applying the brakes firmly, there is a high pitched electrical buzzer noise that comes on, then disappears when the pedal is released. There are no warning lights coming up on the display. This does not happen when I tried slowing the car using only the handbrake; there was the usual warning for 'handbrake on/low fluid level'on the info display, but no 'buzzer' sound.

Is there anything else that could be causing this ?

I have considered the fluid level test sensor on the top of the brake reservoir, but as the warning for this does not show I have discounted this. Is there a coolant level warning on my car ? or could it be something to do with a brake pad sensor wire ( the pads/discs are fine )
Or is it just one of those 'Alfa characteristics' ?

If firmly means really firmly, it could be the sound of the ABS working?
