Good morning, Ayshah here live on CBBC, with everything you need

0:00:040:00:07

to know this Friday.

0:00:070:00:09

We've got some good news for dolphins.

0:00:090:00:11

And the mountain biker reaching over 100 miles an hour.

0:00:110:00:16

Hospitals are really busy at the moment, and lots of people

0:00:240:00:27

think that's a big problem.

0:00:270:00:29

So what does it mean for children who have to go there?

0:00:290:00:32

Jenny's been looking into this one.

0:00:320:00:34

It's the middle of winter, which means it's a very

0:00:340:00:36

busy time of the year for the National Health Service,

0:00:360:00:38

otherwise known as the NHS.

0:00:380:00:41

People are worried it's now getting too busy

0:00:410:00:43

and overcrowded in hospitals, and this means they're having

0:00:430:00:45

to wait a really long time to be seen by a doctor.

0:00:450:00:50

I've come to Sheffield Children's Hospital to meet a doctor who works

0:00:500:00:54

in the emergency department to find out what's going on.

0:00:540:00:56

Is it true, are hospitals getting busier, and especially

0:00:560:00:59

at this time of year?

0:00:590:01:01

Yes, they are getting busier, and year on year we see

0:01:010:01:04

bigger numbers coming, but there is also an increase

0:01:040:01:07

in the winter, which is part of the winter pressures,

0:01:070:01:09

but we are prepared for those, we know they're coming.

0:01:090:01:12

How does this affect children?

0:01:120:01:13

If you're seriously injured, will you still get seen?

0:01:130:01:15

Of course, we have a system called triage, which basically means

0:01:150:01:18

sorting, so when you come through the door you're put

0:01:180:01:21

into a category depending on how severe the nurse or doctor

0:01:210:01:24

thinks your problem is.

0:01:240:01:27

If you were to come to our department tomorrow

0:01:270:01:29

and you were seriously ill or injured, you'd be

0:01:290:01:31

seen straight away.

0:01:310:01:32

If you came with a less urgent problem you might wait a while,

0:01:320:01:35

but you would definitely get seen.

0:01:350:01:37

OK, yes, hospitals are definitely getting busier, but that doesn't

0:01:370:01:41

mean that you won't get seen.

0:01:410:01:42

So what's it actually like having to come into hospital?

0:01:420:01:48

Meet Lily and Jake.

0:01:480:01:49

Jake had to come into hospital when he thought

0:01:490:01:52

he'd broken his thumb.

0:01:520:01:53

And Lily came in after getting bitten by a dog.

0:01:530:01:55

What's it like coming to the hospital?

0:01:550:01:57

Well, when I came there weren't too many people there,

0:01:570:02:01

there were a few seats taken but generally it was quite quick.

0:02:010:02:06

Within ten minutes I was into the x-ray room

0:02:060:02:09

with the doctors and stuff.

0:02:090:02:12

It was quite a different experience for you, though, Lily.

0:02:120:02:15

Can you tell us what happened?

0:02:150:02:16

I got bitten by a dog out of a car window.

0:02:160:02:18

It took quite a long time to get here, then it was quite busy.

0:02:180:02:22

All the chairs were full up.

0:02:220:02:25

There were a lot of people there because it was on a weekend

0:02:250:02:29

and it took quite a long time to get seen, but I eventually did get seen.

0:02:290:02:33

So, what can be done?

0:02:330:02:36

Well, the Government have been criticised by doctors,

0:02:360:02:38

who argue that part of the problem is that patients who are well enough

0:02:380:02:42

to leave hospital can't because they aren't being given

0:02:420:02:45

enough support on the outside.

0:02:450:02:48

The Government say they know that hospitals are very

0:02:480:02:57

busy at the moment but that, despite this, the hospitals

0:02:570:03:00

are coping pretty well.

0:03:000:03:01

Rugby now, and it's the second round of the Six Nations

0:03:010:03:03

matches this weekend.

0:03:030:03:04

Ireland take on Italy, while the Scots have

0:03:040:03:06

a tricky game in France.

0:03:060:03:08

But the big game of the weekend will be England vs Wales.

0:03:080:03:11

The game is being played at the Millennium Stadium,

0:03:110:03:13

and the roof will be closed.

0:03:130:03:23

-- the roof will be open, despite the Welsh team

0:03:240:03:34

asking for it to be closed.

0:03:350:03:36

Well, the England coach has this bit of banter for the Welsh side...

0:03:360:03:39

Well, we're prepared for wind, we're prepared for any

0:03:390:03:41

shenanigans that might go on, and we're looking forward to it.

0:03:410:03:44

It's a great opportunity to play in one of the great

0:03:440:03:47

stadiums of the world.

0:03:470:03:48

You know, they're a cunning lot, the Welsh, aren't they?

0:03:480:03:50

They always have been, and now they've got goats,

0:03:500:03:52

they've got daffodils, they got everything, so who knows.

0:03:520:03:55

Who knows.

0:03:550:03:56

While we're talking sport, here's a big update for you on the sheep

0:03:560:03:59

shearing world championships - yes, that's right...

0:03:590:04:00

The competition is made up of categories including

0:04:000:04:02

traditional blade shearing, machine shearing and wool handling.

0:04:020:04:04

The event is taking place in a country well-known

0:04:040:04:06

for it's sheep, New Zealand, but people from all around

0:04:060:04:09

the world are taking part.

0:04:090:04:10

The final will be held on Saturday night.

0:04:100:04:12

Next, imagine if you had to climb 800 metres to get to your home

0:04:120:04:15

on the top of a huge cliff?!

0:04:150:04:17

That's what these kids have to do, but a giant staircase

0:04:170:04:20

is making a huge difference.

0:04:200:04:21

Welcome to the village of Atuleer.

0:04:210:04:23

Seems like a peaceful place to live, right?

0:04:230:04:29

It's in the Sichuan province of China, but it's had a bit

0:04:290:04:32

of an awkward problem - how do you get to

0:04:320:04:34

the clifftop village?

0:04:340:04:35

It's an epic adventure.

0:04:350:04:36

People used to have to climb 800 metres up the cliff,

0:04:360:04:39

with only these rickety ladders to help them.

0:04:390:04:41

It wasn't easy, or that safe.

0:04:410:04:43

But things are on the way up, quite literally.

0:04:430:04:48

Steel staircases have been built all the way to the village.

0:04:480:04:52

Villagers say it's a big help, much safer, and they hope tourists

0:04:520:04:55

will come and pay them a visit, too.

0:04:550:05:00

Some very good news for dolphins now.

0:05:000:05:02

Big numbers of them have been spotted off

0:05:020:05:04

the west coast of Scotland.

0:05:040:05:05

Conservationists have been been tracking the animals as part

0:05:050:05:07

of a survey to learn more about them.

0:05:070:05:09

But they don't yet know why their numbers have

0:05:090:05:11

increased by so much.

0:05:110:05:14

To the super-speedy man who's broken his own mountain

0:05:140:05:16

biking downhill record.

0:05:160:05:17

Markus Stokl managed to reach a speed of just

0:05:170:05:20

over 104 miles an hour - that's faster than a car is allowed

0:05:200:05:22

to travel on the roads in the UK.

0:05:220:05:28

He's certainly braver than me!

0:05:280:05:31

Finally, say hello to this little fella.

0:05:310:05:34

He's a rare baby antelope who was born at Chester zoo.

0:05:340:05:38

His name is Thanos and he's one of the world's smallest

0:05:380:05:40

breeds of antelope.

0:05:400:05:41

Sadly his mum died when she was giving birth,

0:05:410:05:44

so now staff are raising him.

0:05:440:05:48

That's all from me and the team this morning, Ricky's back at 4:20pm

0:05:480:05:51

with your afternoon Newsround.

0:05:510:05:53

See you!
