If the noise you heard is a whirring, motor like sound, its the starter motor not actually engauging with the ring gear on the flywheel.
Its a known fault with early CTR's, of which yours, being on a 56 plate will most certainly be.
You need a new flywheel in that case. You car is probably just about out of warranty now, but i'd fight it with honda for them to pay, as its a well known issue that they know about
