Engine Noise

Hi all, newby here.

I have a '95 520i with 130k on the clock, regularly serviced.

I was driving at around 40mph and felt a slight what seemed to be rear wheelspin for a moment and suffered a slight loss of power for a few seconds, the car then picked up and drove ok. I drove a mile home following this.

Now when I start the engine there is an awful squealing/flapping sound coming from the engine.
All the maintenance fluids are topped up, belts that I can see are not loose.

Now I dare not drive it - has anyone any idea what has happened?

Thanks for your help.
