Droning Noise at Speed

Recently purchased a 2004 1.6VTEC Civic. Took it on motorway first time and when I reached 70 mph it started making a droning noise. It got progressively louder as I accelerated beyond 70. Strangely if I did the same in 4th gear there was no noise, noise only happened in 5th. It was a kind of repeating "drone...drone...drone". Any ideas?

They are prone to road/tyre noise. My 55 1.6 Exec did and you do get used to it. Don't know about gears because mine was an automatic
