I'm pretty sure I've figured out what I was doing wrong after another re-install.
I was previously starting squid directly from /usr/sbin/squid instead of using 'service squid start'. Starting it directly from /usr/sbin/squid apparently(?) doesn't initialise squid.pid as squid_var_run_t, rather it just starts as var_run_t, which is why I got a denial.
Starting squid via 'service squid start' as I should have been doing from the start is working fine now.
