Older jobseekers are facing widespread discrimination - according to a new study by Anglia Ruskin University.
Researchers there made up two CVs with identical skills but one from someone in their 20s - the other in their 50s.
They sent them off for almost 2000 jobs over two years and in all the older candidate was more than 4 times LESS likely to get an interview.
And the difference was even more pronounced for women, with the 50-year-old female candidate 5.3 times less likely to get an interview than the 28-year-old female.
Yellow and amber warnings are in force for heavy rain as thunderstorms approach the East of England from the near continent this evening.
The amber warning is in force until 21:00 this evening and covers southern parts of Essex and the south East of England.
The Met Office Chief Meteorologist warns:
Another pulse of thundery activity from France will extend across the area this afternoon and evening. The ground remains saturated from earlier heavy rain, and the high water loading in the atmosphere means that more than 30 mm in an hour or less could well occur locally.
Elsewhere, a yellow warning is in force until late Friday because of the risk of further heavy rain overnight and into Friday afternoon:
Localised thunderstorms may also develop across south east England and East Anglia during Friday late afternoon and evening, these potentially giving 15-25 mm of rain in an hour.
The environment agency are also urging people to be careful not to drive through floodwater and for campers and holidaymakers to check the flood risk for their area.
Heavy rainfall this afternoon and into this evening brings risk of further surface water flooding, particularly for parts of Essex. If you’re driving away or back from your summer holidays, as always, please remember not to drive through flood water. People are urged to check their flood risk on our website, especially if you’re holidaying in an area where you’re not familiar with the flood risk.
How exactly do we know what causes fog to form, which clouds will give us rain, or how polluted the air outside is? Well, our weather presenter Aidan McGivern has been out and about this summer meeting the scientists who turn their eyes to the skies and research the state of the atmosphere. His first stop was at Weybourne in Norfolk - an unlikely site for research into global pollution levels.
But not many people will know about the observatory there on the North Norfolk coast and the work it does to monitor global air pollution levels.
So here are another 10 facts about pollution that you may also not be aware about.
- Since the Clean Air Act in 1968, air pollution in the UK has decreased - especially sulphur dioxide and smoke.
- However, some urban areas in the UK are still highly polluted - a 2012 study estimated that 19,000 people each year die from the effects of air pollution.
- Another study suggested that walking in Oxford on an average day was the equivalent of smoking sixty cigarettes.
- Air pollution from road vehicles is most harmful to human health.
- The worst pollutants in the UK are ozone, particulate matter and sulphur dioxide.
- The Department for Environment, Food and Rural Affairs have created a daily warning system to inform people of expected pollution levels.
- There are 500 million cars in the world at the moment and by 2030 there are expected to be one billion cars.
- People most at risk of high pollution levels are children, the elderly and those with heart and lung disease.
- China is the world's largest producer of Carbon Dioxide.
- The great smog of 1952 in London lasted for four days and is regarded as the worst pollution disaster the UK has ever known.
