Are there any rules as to an article before a noun in the singular in headlines please, i.e. lack of an article?

Articles in headlines are optional. The style is called as Headlinese.

Wikipedia quotes under the section 'Syntax'

Articles are usually omitted.

It's for the sake of brevity.

A document specifically written on 'article drop' in headlines is here (PDF, downloadable, safe).
