That is all from us. It is goodbye from me, and on

:00:00.:00:00.

Good evening and welcome to BBC Look from me, and on BBC One,

:00:00.:00:06.

Good evening and welcome to BBC Look North. The headlines tonight: The

:00:06.:00:09.

graduate told to hide her qualifications to improve her

:00:09.:00:19.

chances of getting a job. I am doing everything I can and the

:00:19.:00:27.

only response is to take Under a cloud.

:00:27.:00:30.

My degree off my CV. The town that may have to live with bad smells

:00:30.:00:33.

until next summer. Campaigners fear a Grimsby swimming

:00:33.:00:36.

pool may never reopen after asbestos is found at the site. ?? new line A

:00:36.:00:40.

woman who's become known as The Bee Lady wins a national award after

:00:40.:00:49.

raising thousands for charity. That important forecast follows in 15

:00:50.:00:58.

minutes. Good evening.

:00:58.:01:03.

An unemployed university graduate says she's been told to "dumb down"

:01:03.:01:07.

her CV if she wants to find a job in Hull. Liza Fitzpatrick has a degree

:01:07.:01:10.

from the city's university, but claims she was told by an employment

:01:10.:01:13.

advisor that it would make her overqualified for most vacancies.

:01:13.:01:16.

Her local MP Karl Turner has criticised the advice she was given

:01:16.:01:19.

and claims there's evidence of a "brain drain" in Hull. More from Tim

:01:19.:01:25.

Iredale. After leaving school with no

:01:25.:01:28.

qualifications, Liza Fitzpatrick never expected to go to university.

:01:28.:01:34.

So when she became a student in later life and graduated from the

:01:34.:01:37.

University of Hull, Ms Fitzpatrick thought it would give her a

:01:37.:01:41.

much—needed leg—up on the career ladder. That was until she says an

:01:41.:01:44.

adviser told her to remove any mention of her degree from her CV.

:01:44.:01:55.

He claimed employers will look at my CV and say, she is over employed, we

:01:55.:01:59.

will not take care on. Liza Fitzpatrick lives in the

:01:59.:02:02.

Bransholme area of Hull. She graduated last year with degree in

:02:02.:02:07.

social and community studies. She is looking for a job as a support

:02:07.:02:13.

worker with formidable people. I have been applying for advertise

:02:13.:02:18.

jobs. I am doing everything I can, and the advice is to take my degree

:02:18.:02:23.

off my CV. I don't know where to turn what else to do.

:02:23.:02:29.

Ms Fitzpatrick says she was advised about her CV by Work Solutions, an

:02:29.:02:32.

organisation which helps the long—term unemployed. The company

:02:32.:02:41.

said qualifications and degrees are achievements to be proud of, and

:02:41.:02:44.

that they would never recommend the removal from a CV. However, they add

:02:44.:02:49.

a CV should be focused clearly towards an industry sector or a

:02:49.:02:52.

vacancy that a candidate is applying for. I don't think it is appropriate

:02:52.:02:59.

for her to be told to dumb down her CV. It creates a brain drain. People

:02:59.:03:06.

want to go to their local university, get a good degree, great

:03:06.:03:12.

qualifications, then find themselves having to leave the city because of

:03:12.:03:24.

a lack of skilled jobs. This East Yorkshire—based

:03:24.:03:25.

recruitment agency says job—seekers shouldn't have to hide their

:03:25.:03:31.

qualifications. I have never come across anybody who says they do not

:03:31.:03:35.

want to employ somebody because of their qualifications. Meanwhile,

:03:35.:03:40.

Liza Fitzpatrick remains on the hunt for work and is hopeful that she'll

:03:40.:03:43.

find a vacancy to match her qualification.

:03:43.:03:49.

Earlier, I spoke to Apprentice finalist and enterprise champion

:03:49.:03:54.

Claire Young. I asked her what she thought of Liza being asked to

:03:54.:04:04.

remove her degree from her CV. I think it's absolutely ridiculous

:04:04.:04:07.

that somebody who has been to university, put the time and money

:04:07.:04:16.

in, has been advised to remove her CV — — remove her degree from her

:04:16.:04:21.

CV. People should be proud of their qualifications. She has and that

:04:21.:04:25.

degree and should be proud of it. It is completely wrong. Presumably, you

:04:25.:04:33.

can be other qualified for a job, so therefore dumb down and take it off.

:04:33.:04:38.

That is a counterargument. There are a lot of people with degrees and not

:04:38.:04:42.

a lot of jobs. You just have to turn on the TV, read a newspaper or

:04:42.:04:54.

listen to the radio to see that. You cannot discriminate against somebody

:04:54.:05:00.

because of qualifications. It is a free for all. You want to hire the

:05:00.:05:06.

right person for the job. Can you be overqualified for a job?

:05:06.:05:11.

I think some people would dismiss people straightaway if they are

:05:11.:05:17.

overqualified. The fear that they will walk into the job, stay a few

:05:17.:05:22.

weeks and then me far better job. I think that is the fear. So people

:05:22.:05:28.

can be overqualified. People want a job and they do want to work. If

:05:28.:05:33.

they want to clean floors or stack shelves and they have a degree, they

:05:33.:05:37.

just want to get to work. There has been a big response on this. Ian

:05:37.:05:43.

says, it just goes to show a degree is not worth the paper it is written

:05:43.:05:48.

on. I think that is a flippant comment. I think lots of

:05:48.:05:53.

degrees are worth the paper they are written on, such as the doctors we

:05:53.:06:00.

see and the vets who fix however — — the vets who fix our pets and the

:06:00.:06:14.

accountant who helps businesses. To search all degrees are not worth the

:06:14.:06:18.

paper they are written on, I think that is extreme. Thank you for your

:06:18.:06:20.

time. We'd love to hear your views on this

:06:20.:06:24.

story. Should Liza have to dumb down her CV and take out some of her

:06:24.:06:27.

qualifications if it means she then has a better chance of finding work

:06:28.:06:31.

in Hull? Or should she let potential employers know all her

:06:31.:06:32.

qualifications? If anyone might be able to help as a

:06:32.:07:20.

mental, get in touch. — — mentor. People living in Beverley have been

:07:20.:07:24.

told they'll have to suffer bad smells from the town's water

:07:24.:07:26.

treatment works for the foreseeable future. Yorkshire Water have

:07:26.:07:29.

apologised for the increased odours from the site but say it'll be at

:07:29.:07:32.

least nine months before an investigation can begin. And it'll

:07:32.:07:36.

be next year before they can start to solve the problem. Sarah Corker

:07:36.:07:38.

reports. It is a pleasant, picturesque place

:07:38.:07:44.

to live in the East Riding, but it seems in Beverly, there is something

:07:44.:07:48.

in the air. Sometimes it's not very sickly. Sewage, eggs, I don't know

:07:48.:07:56.

what it is. It is the smell of sewage. The toilets now. That's now

:07:56.:08:01.

emanates from the town 's sewage works. Those living nearby say that

:08:01.:08:08.

at times, it is unbearable. It is very depressing. It is ongoing and

:08:08.:08:14.

relentless. To odour control unit already operate 24 hours a day. This

:08:14.:08:22.

serves a population of around 47,000 people in and around the Beverley

:08:22.:08:29.

area. Every day, it treats lots of sewage. Yorkshire water has spent

:08:29.:08:34.

millions to upgrade the sites to curb growing demand. They are

:08:34.:08:39.

beginning an investigative study early next year. Once we have

:08:39.:08:45.

carried that out, we will be in a position to say what we intend to do

:08:45.:08:50.

to improve the site. Beverley 's population is growing, putting more

:08:50.:08:56.

pressure on the system. We are going to have another 3000 people, near

:08:56.:09:08.

enough. This need sorting now. Can this site cope with the number of

:09:08.:09:13.

people in this area? Yes. It is working and operating well.

:09:13.:09:22.

Elsewhere in East Yorkshire, the smell has played people in Hebden

:09:22.:09:30.

for years. At this resource, people said the smell is putting off

:09:30.:09:34.

visitors. Back in Beverley, they're using delicate ways of masking the

:09:35.:09:46.

odour. A short—term fix while Yorkshire water work on a more

:09:46.:09:53.

permanent solution. We will continue to follow that story.

:09:53.:09:55.

Swimmers in Grimsby have been told that the town's main swimming pool

:09:55.:09:59.

will remain closed until further notice after asbestos was found in

:09:59.:10:03.

the building. It was initially thought work to clear it would take

:10:03.:10:07.

only a few days, but North East Lincolnshire Council who own the

:10:07.:10:10.

pool say they don't know when it will re—open. It comes as nearby

:10:10.:10:14.

Cleethorpes Pool is also closed at the moment. Phil Norton is in

:10:14.:10:20.

Grimsby this evening. Why will it take so long to reopen this pool?

:10:20.:10:25.

Well, it is because of this doors have been closed for almost

:10:25.:10:37.

two weeks after this asbestos dust was found in the main swimming pool.

:10:37.:10:43.

The council say the specialist clean—up is taking place, and it is

:10:43.:10:47.

closed indefinitely until the results of special test are known.

:10:47.:10:52.

Campaigners have been telling me there have been campaigning against

:10:52.:10:56.

the closure of this pool. It is earmarked for closure and demolition

:10:56.:11:00.

in the next few years, to be replaced by smaller, new

:11:00.:11:05.

facilities. Campaigners say they fear these doors may never open

:11:05.:11:11.

again. Personally, I believe this is what they consider to be a step

:11:11.:11:18.

towards closure. I sincerely hope the rest of the town and everyone

:11:18.:11:30.

stands up and speaks out. North East Lincolnshire Council say this

:11:30.:11:34.

closure is precautionary, and say it follows an asbestos survey. It says

:11:34.:11:43.

the cleaning has been completed but it is waiting for the all clear

:11:43.:11:52.

before it can reopen. I do sympathise with the views of people

:11:52.:11:56.

who are passionate about the facility. On behalf of the council,

:11:56.:12:01.

we are sorry. We put health and safety as a top priority. The

:12:01.:12:09.

important thing is to get those results. Campaigners have told me it

:12:09.:12:24.

has thrown leisure facilities across Lincolnshire into disarray. They say

:12:24.:12:29.

it is putting more pressure on other facilities in the area.

:12:29.:12:35.

Thank you. The Prime Minister has told

:12:35.:12:37.

delegates at the Conservative Party Conference that the Humber should

:12:37.:12:40.

become a centre for green energy. Plans for a wind turbine factory in

:12:40.:12:44.

Hull were proposed in 2010 but the company behind them, Siemens, has

:12:44.:12:47.

not yet committed itself to the deal. David Cameron said the British

:12:47.:12:54.

economy had been too focused on London for too long. Think what more

:12:54.:12:59.

we could do with the Pistons fire ring in all parts of the economy.

:12:59.:13:02.

Let's make the Humber the centre of clean energy. Let's make Blackpool

:13:02.:13:08.

the centre of Europe for the shale gas industry.

:13:08.:13:10.

A woman accused of hiring a hit man to kill her husband is set to face a

:13:10.:13:15.

re—trial. A jury at Hull Crown Court failed to reach a verdict on whether

:13:15.:13:19.

Lisa Fairpo, seen here in the blue hoody, was guilty of conspiracy to

:13:19.:13:21.

commit murder. Prosecutors say they've contacted the court to seek

:13:21.:13:25.

a re—trial because the case is in the public interest.

:13:25.:13:29.

The Trust which runs hospitals in Lincolnshire says there's no

:13:29.:13:31.

decision on the future of out—of—hours emergency care at

:13:31.:13:33.

Grantham Hospital despite concerns that it maybe cut. The chairman of

:13:33.:13:37.

Lincolnshire County Council says he's worried that a review of how

:13:37.:13:39.

health care is town's accident and emergency unit

:13:39.:13:43.

will close overnight. But United Lincolnshire Hospitals Trust says

:13:43.:13:46.

they're investing in health care in the county and no decisions have

:13:46.:13:48.

been made. You are

:13:48.:14:03.

maternity has gone and the out of hours. It is a good hospital, and it

:14:03.:14:12.

is a shame they keep putting it bit by bit. They ought to look after it

:14:12.:14:18.

and not reduce it. It would be not good if they did so. Thank you for

:14:18.:14:24.

watching. Still ahead tonight: How 11 newts are holding up development

:14:24.:14:32.

of an East Yorkshire nature reserve. ?? new line She's known as the Bee

Sunrise over the Humber Oil refinery at Immingham taken by Lee Wilson.

:14:46.:14:58.

Thank you very much indeed. It made me laugh when I saw you pop—up. I

:14:58.:15:03.

thought this will be good, because you have been in a class.

:15:03.:15:09.

My course was in spoken English as well.

:15:09.:15:19.

I should have come with you. I am gone to watch carefully to see

:15:19.:15:24.

if the course was worth investing in.

:15:24.:15:26.

Peter, it is always accurate, you know that. After great start, it

:15:26.:15:33.

will turn brighter. We are expecting evening rain. It could be

:15:33.:15:37.

particularly heavy, courtesy of this very active weather fronts which

:15:37.:15:40.

will push through tomorrow evening and night. The good news yet again

:15:40.:15:47.

is that the weekend is looking to write with sunshine I think much of

:15:47.:15:53.

next week will be fine and quite one for October. Something to look

:15:53.:15:59.

forward to. You can see on the satellite picture, still a lot of

:15:59.:16:06.

cloud out there. I think for many, it is a dry and mild night for early

:16:07.:16:16.

October. Lowest temperatures down to 13 or 14. The sun will rise at

:16:16.:16:29.

7:06am. Perhaps a damp start in places. Thicker cloud threatens in

:16:30.:16:52.

the afternoon. Quite windy, especially later along the coast.

:16:52.:16:56.

Friday, sunny spells and scattered showers and a lovely weekend to

:16:56.:16:57.

follow. That's the forecast. Bari said, we no longer see

:16:58.:17:11.

barometric pressure charts. We do, because I use them every

:17:11.:17:14.

night. Are you sure?

:17:14.:17:19.

I am positive. What is wrong with him, then? Don't

:17:19.:17:24.

answer that. I am holding back a response.

:17:24.:17:33.

I know, that is why I said don't. Watch more politely tomorrow, Barry.

:17:34.:17:35.

That is the polite way. A growing number of young people in

:17:35.:17:41.

Lincolnshire who are being bullied are using a new online counselling

:17:41.:17:44.

service rather than talking about their problems face to face. The new

:17:44.:17:48.

service has seen the number of users double since it began in March.

:17:48.:17:58.

Leanne Brown reports. They should have been the best years

:17:58.:18:01.

of her life, but Katie from Market Deeping says her final days at

:18:01.:18:04.

school left her depressed and lonely. It started through Facebook.

:18:04.:18:23.

People would put comments on. What sort of things were they saying?

:18:23.:18:29.

Things like, go and die, you are fat, nobody likes you, your family

:18:29.:18:33.

hates you. Comments that made me feel that I hated myself as it felt

:18:34.:18:38.

like everybody else hated me. Katy welcomes Lincolnshire County

:18:38.:18:40.

Council's online counselling service which they've commisioned for 11—25

:18:40.:18:46.

year olds. Young people can talk about anything that's troubling

:18:46.:18:48.

them, and it's available out— of—hours — 365 days a year. So far,

:18:48.:18:52.

more than 80% of users said they prefer online counselling more than

:18:52.:19:03.

face—to—face. You can instantly access qualified counsellors, who

:19:03.:19:06.

are at the other end. You can have dropping chats with those

:19:06.:19:09.

councillors or have upped sessions with them. Young people like having

:19:09.:19:16.

that use of technology, so we have to make sure the services we provide

:19:16.:19:20.

move with the times as well. Teachers say in the last few years

:19:20.:19:24.

there has been a surge of youngesters using the internet. They

:19:24.:19:26.

welcome anything that could prevent a repeat of what happened to

:19:26.:19:29.

14—year—old Hannah Smith, who took her own life after being bullied on

:19:29.:19:35.

Ask FM. Bullying used to be just at school, in school. Now, of course it

:19:35.:19:40.

is anything to do with new technology. It might be Facebook, on

:19:40.:19:48.

instant messages, on phones. It is also on the major games, where they

:19:48.:19:55.

get headsets on. Any situation where the children who do not know where

:19:55.:19:58.

they are talking to. Here at Caistor Yarborough School

:19:58.:20:00.

they have anti—bullying ambassadors and drop—in sessions. But if

:20:00.:20:02.

students don't want to talk face—to—face, they can now do it

:20:02.:20:13.

online. Thanks to everybody who got in touch with us about the teaching

:20:13.:20:17.

strike yesterday. One of the region's biggest teaching

:20:17.:20:20.

unions has not ruled out further strikes. Around 250 schools in East

:20:20.:20:23.

Yorkshire and Lincolnshire were affected by yesterday's industrial

:20:23.:20:25.

action, which was widely condemned by the Government.

:20:25.:20:28.

There has been a very big response to this story.

:20:28.:20:48.

Thank you for the many messages. We read and listen to them all. The

:20:48.:20:56.

development of the visitor centre at Bempton Cliffs near Bridlington will

:20:56.:21:00.

cost £1 million and work was due to start this autumn. But it's been

:21:00.:21:04.

held up by a rather unusual discovery—a handful of Great Crested

:21:04.:21:07.

Newts, which are protected by European law. Amy Cole has been to

:21:07.:21:15.

find out more. It is stopping you from doing any

:21:15.:21:21.

redevelopment? It has delayed an aspect of the project. Scott is

:21:21.:21:24.

talking about the great crested newt, a species that has recently

:21:24.:21:30.

been found at the nature reserve. What is the problem with them being

:21:30.:21:37.

here? They are protected under European law. Any development which

:21:37.:21:39.

takes place, we have to make sure they are safe. Just over there is

:21:40.:21:49.

our overflow car park. With it being so close to the pond, it has delayed

:21:49.:21:56.

things. Is frustrating? Not at all. It is fantastic. The building of a

:21:56.:22:03.

major new shopping centre in York will not now open in time for

:22:03.:22:07.

Christmas, but has been pushed back to next Easter, and in Durham, work

:22:07.:22:11.

on a new police headquarters has been halted. Back in Pemberton,

:22:11.:22:16.

there is a lot to do, including fencing of the areas earmarked for

:22:16.:22:30.

construction — — backing Bempton. We will release the newts outside the

:22:30.:22:35.

fence in a safe area with a new improved habitat. When the

:22:35.:22:40.

contractors come on site next autumn, we will know their rhino

:22:40.:22:43.

newts to be injured, damaged or even killed. More than half of the

:22:43.:22:49.

development has come from the Heritage lottery fund, which has

:22:49.:22:53.

been told why, and usually that money cannot yet be spent. ?? new

:22:53.:22:57.

line You all remember this lady. Jean Bishop is also known as the Bee

:22:57.:23:11.

Lady from Hull. She raises thousands of pounds for charity and now she's

:23:11.:23:14.

won a top national award. Jean's been named as a winner at the Pride

:23:14.:23:18.

of Britain Awards and will appear on National TV next week. Jo Makel has

:23:18.:23:22.

been to meet her. ?? new line Jean Bishop has been an inspiration in

:23:22.:23:26.

this area for some time now. But now it seems she's being recognised as a

:23:26.:23:29.

national treasure too. The 91—year—old has raised more than

:23:29.:23:39.

£90,000 for charity. She knew she'd been nominated for a Pride of

:23:39.:23:43.

Britain Award. But while she was filming in London ahead of next

:23:43.:23:46.

week's ceremony, she got a surprise visitor. I started to look up and I

:23:46.:23:51.

came up to his chest. I thought, back is a cheek, he's pinching my

:23:51.:23:59.

patch. He is really kind. He explained I had won the award. I am

:23:59.:24:06.

very proud of it, yes. Last year, Jean was an Olympic torch bearer.

:24:06.:24:10.

She is also met the Queen. Those who have benefitted from her charity

:24:10.:24:13.

work say she deserves the recognition. To actually raise

:24:13.:24:19.

nearly £100,000 over 20 years is phenomenal. And just the way she has

:24:19.:24:26.

done it. It is has just been about her, dressing up and going out

:24:26.:24:31.

talking to people and collecting funds. She is such a lovely person,

:24:31.:24:36.

everybody loves her. Jean and her family will be at the
