The plane crashed upon landing. The female pilot was injured. According to a press release from Humberside Police:

"A female pilot has been taken to hospital for treatment for minor injuries following a light aircraft crash at Linley Hill Airport, Beverley, today. (Saturday, September 26). Police were called to the scene at around 11am, after the Cessna 150 Aerobat two seater was involved in the single aircraft collision as it came in to land. The incident is now in the hands of the Civil Aviation Authority's air investigation team"

UPDATE: According to the following summary from the official AAIB report into the accident...

"The student pilot had completed 3 hours solo in the circuit and 55 minutes of solo cross-country. This flight was a triangular solo cross-country exercise from Beverley to overhead Carnaby, to overhead Elvington, and then back to Beverley.

The student pilot was approximately half way between Elvington and Beverley on the last leg when she started to feel dizzy and found concentration difficult. She continued towards Beverley and joined downwind, recalling that her height had dropped to around 600 feet. She turned onto final at approximately 300 feet, and recalled that she was struggling to concentrate and manage the aircraft’s height. The aircraft struck some tall grass close to the runway threshold and landed heavily on the nose wheel, causing extensive damage to the nose gear, forward fuselage and left wing. The student suffered minor injuries and was assisted by an instructor who was first on the scene."

Damage sustained to airframe: Per the AAIB report "Significant structural damage to the nose leg, propeller, fuselage and wings"
