Groaning sound from front end after braking

After driving for about 10 to 15 minutes and the car is warmed up, when I come to a complete stop and release the brakes and roll forward I get this groaning sound coming from the front end. It is like something doesn't want to move, but once I get going there is no noise. There is no noise going over bumps or when turning around corners. Pushing the front end up and down and I am not getting any noise.
Could this be the wheel bearings, or is it the brakes not releasing correctly?

Almost certainly something to do with the brakes. Sounds like pads/shoes are not releasing.
