There has been a worrying fall in the number of women

:00:10.:00:12.

in Yorkshire going for cervical cancer screenings.

:00:13.:00:13.

More than a quarter of young women in the region still

:00:14.:00:16.

In 2009, 76% of women in Yorkshire aged 25 to 49 were screened.

:00:17.:00:21.

But six years later that had fallen to 73%.

:00:22.:00:25.

Ali Fortescue has met one woman with incurable cervical cancer who's

:00:26.:00:28.

campaigning to make more women aware of the dangers.

:00:29.:00:33.

Her family describe her as funny, a party girl just like

:00:34.:00:36.

But right now Liz's 30s aren't panning out as she had expected

:00:37.:00:41.

and this is a family putting on a brave face.

:00:42.:00:46.

She had a smear test when she was 25 but hasn't had one since.

:00:47.:00:50.

Now Liz has been diagnosed with incurable cervical cancer.

:00:51.:00:54.

I have days when I am down, but I just try to keep as positive

:00:55.:00:59.

For me, I am not one that will just sit and dwell,

:01:00.:01:08.

I have got to keep going as much as I can and do what

:01:09.:01:11.

Women aged between the ages of 25 and 49 should get a smear test

:01:12.:01:16.

Early diagnosis is key and could help prevent up to 75%

:01:17.:01:21.

I think some people think, it is not going to affect me or I am

:01:22.:01:29.

People kind of shy away from the screening but it is

:01:30.:01:35.

I think people build it up in their head and actually

:01:36.:01:40.

when you get the appointment booked, turn up and have it done and I think

:01:41.:01:44.

people will walk away and think, actually that wasn't that bad.

:01:45.:01:49.

But Liz's fighting spirit hasn't failed her now.

:01:50.:01:52.

She is using her story to raise awareness with

:01:53.:01:54.

She will be auctioning a selection of goodies including a signed

:01:55.:01:58.

Kell Brook boxing glove and a Jess Ennis Team GB vest.

:01:59.:02:02.

She says if she persuades even one person to take

:02:03.:02:04.

Robert Music is from the charity Jo's Cervical Cancer Trust.

:02:05.:02:12.

I asked him how important smear tests are.

:02:13.:02:16.

Cervical screening is an incredibly important test.

:02:17.:02:20.

It it is estimated to save around 5,000 lives every year in the UK.

:02:21.:02:25.

However we are seeing the numbers of women attending screenings

:02:26.:02:28.

across the UK fall down year on year.

:02:29.:02:32.

It is hugely worrying because the test can take five

:02:33.:02:34.

It's not an appointment any of us look forward to but it is a quick

:02:35.:02:42.

The results could save a life so why are people not going forward

:02:43.:02:47.

Jo's Cervical Cancer Trust has been commissioned research so for younger

:02:48.:02:56.

women it is about embarrassment or worrying it may be painful

:02:57.:03:01.

or interestingly the fear of the results because they think

:03:02.:03:04.

is a test to find cancer rather than prevent cancer.

:03:05.:03:06.

In the older age group we are seeing numbers drop as well now.

:03:07.:03:11.

How do we encourage more women to come forward and get screened?

:03:12.:03:17.

There has to be a focus within each area or constituency to think

:03:18.:03:21.

about their communities and be very targeted in terms of what is going

:03:22.:03:24.

We would like to see a woman be able to be screened at any GP surgery.

:03:25.:03:37.

If there was a surgery near their work they could go

:03:38.:03:41.

there and be screened and have this wonderful life-saving test done

:03:42.:03:43.

and not worry about it for another three or five years depending

:03:44.:03:46.

That is a key part and something we want to see looked at.

:03:47.:03:54.

An 18-year-old man has been charged with the murder of teenager

:03:55.:03:57.

Her body was found in an alleyway off Lordens Hill

:03:58.:04:00.

Shea Peter Heeley, who also comes from Dinnington,

:04:01.:04:04.

will appear at Sheffield Magistrates Court tomorrow.

:04:05.:04:07.

Owners of Land Rovers across Yorkshire are being urged

:04:08.:04:09.

to upgrade security after a spate of thefts.

:04:10.:04:13.

The model has soared in value after the company

:04:14.:04:15.

The National Farmers' Union says the number

:04:16.:04:18.

The work of one of the most famous artists all of time has

:04:19.:04:25.

Linocut prints by Picasso no less, have gone on show

:04:26.:04:29.

Pablo Picasso, one of the most famous artists in the world

:04:30.:04:37.

He did absolutely everything - painting, sculpting, playwriting,

:04:38.:04:41.

And he did some linocut which you can see behind me.

:04:42.:04:48.

There are 17 of these linocuts here in Barnsley,

:04:49.:04:50.

it's a bit of a coup for the Cooper Gallery and I have

:04:51.:04:55.

two people who can hopefully tell me more about Picasso.

:04:56.:05:00.

Natalie Murray from the gallery, this is a huge thing for the museum.

:05:01.:05:05.

We're really pleased to be hosting the exhibition.

:05:06.:05:12.

The gallery is free public access so absolutely anyone locally

:05:13.:05:15.

Hugo Chapman is from the British Museum.

:05:16.:05:22.

Picasso was prolific - how important is this stuff

:05:23.:05:24.

Printmaking was an integral part of what Picasso did

:05:25.:05:32.

and the print behind me, Still Life With A Lamp,

:05:33.:05:34.

is one of those prints that is in every single

:05:35.:05:37.

Picasso was known by one name but if you want

:05:38.:05:47.

to know his full name, Google it, there are lots of them.

:05:48.:05:51.

I tried to remember it but I failed dismally.

:05:52.:05:53.

You can see this gallery exhibition until the end of April in Barnsley.

:05:54.:05:56.

Football now, and Sheffield Wednesday lost 2-1 to Brighton.

:05:57.:06:03.

An early goal from Brighton was cancelled out by an own

:06:04.:06:05.

That defeat leaves Wednesday in sixth position ahead of the rest

:06:06.:06:12.

It is set to be a cold night tonight, in fact we're looking

:06:13.:06:24.

Through tomorrow morning plenty of winter sunshine but more cloud

:06:25.:06:28.

developing in the afternoon and really quite cloudy, even a bit

:06:29.:06:31.

High pressure dominates over the weekend and actually

:06:32.:06:37.

for the first half of next week so a lot of settled and quite chilly

:06:38.:06:41.

weather to come but fog could also be an issue at the start

:06:42.:06:44.

We could get a little patchy fog in a few prone spots through this

:06:45.:06:49.

evening and overnight particularly down the Vale of York.

:06:50.:06:51.

Clear spells allow temperatures to tumble and I think we're widely

:06:52.:06:54.

expecting frost and temperatures rurally could drop a few

:06:55.:06:56.

Tomorrow a frosty start to the day with some lingering fog patches

:06:57.:07:01.

but generally a lot of sunshine and quite pleasant

:07:02.:07:04.

But the cloud pushing in off the North Sea extending westwards

:07:05.:07:10.

through the course of the day perhaps even producing a little bit

:07:11.:07:13.

of drizzle and the odd snow flurry and feeling chilly with a high

:07:14.:07:16.

That's that from the late team at Look North.

:07:17.:07:21.

feel cooler. Can we keep it going until the start of the new week? I

:07:22.:07:35.

suspect we can. Unconfirmed about -- concerned about the fog around. Here

:07:36.:07:37.

is Helen with the national picture. Good evening. The weather is upon

:07:38.:07:48.

us. The cloud has made all the difference this week in particular.

:07:49.:07:51.

We have had some wonderful weather watcher pictures, this is Marlowe in

:07:52.:07:55.

Buckinghamshire, this was Conwy earlier in the day. Some areas still

:07:56.:08:01.

have the cloud. What a difference that makes. Edinburgh, the central

:08:02.:08:03.

lowlands,

:08:04.:08:04.
