Sounds like ABS...if you have it. It is saying that there is an error with the ABS (anti-lock braking) system. you should get this checked out because when this light is illuminated, the system may be disabled.

Ok thanks Matt, i was hoping it might be something a little more straight forward like brake pads!!, would my car fail an MOT with this light showing do you think?
