Strange noise & drop in mpg????

Hi folks

My 159 1.9jtdm TI has developed a strange noise from, ( i thing the front wheels ) and also ive noticed the mpg is shown as only 22- 24 ( around town driving )

I cant even describe the noise lol, it gets louder the faster the car goes.....Its not a grinding / metal noise, maybe a "whirring" type of noise ( if there is such a word )

Could the 2 problems be linked in some way?

The whirring noise would suggest the wheel bearing needs replacing and it could be affecting mpg but not by a huge amount I wouldn't have thought.
