Default Volvo 940 Strange Noise

Hello, I recently purchased a 1995 940 LPT Estate and have been getting a strange "tapping" noise from the engine.

It is only really noticable when idle and when the engine has got some heat in it.

It is very similar to the noise in this vid https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=k6kCx70Tapg

I changed the oil with semi-synthetic 10w40 about two weeks ago along with oil and air filter.

Other than that it drives fine and has done multiple 100+ mile trips since I bought it.

Any suggestions on how to get rid of the noise would be appriciated.

Odd. Sounds almost like a valve moving around?

I'd say drive it until it explodes?
