There is a # symbol at the end which I can't seem to delete. I think this is causing the problem. Does anyone know how to fix this? Thanks
With selection tool (V) drag up the bottom text frame.
# symbol: is the end of story, from type menu>show/hide hidden characters (Ctrl+Alt+I)
Without a screen shot from you we are just guessing, but if the space isn't a dramatic as in Salah's example, then take a look at Type > Footnote Properties > Layout > Spacing Options.
EDIT: I just saw your screen shot. Sorry!
