Hi, I'm Ayshah and this is Tueday

morning's Newsround.

0:00:030:00:06

All this on the way...

0:00:060:00:08

The people clubbing together

to buy this castle...

0:00:080:00:12

A record breaking rainbow...

0:00:120:00:13

And the pizza party in space.

0:00:130:00:19

First up, loads of plastic like this

goes into our oceans every year,

0:00:270:00:30

causing lots of problems

for wildlife.

0:00:300:00:34

Environment ministers from around

the world are considering

0:00:340:00:35

a total ban on plastic waste in the

ocean.

0:00:350:00:39

They talk about it at a UN

meeting in Kenya this week.

0:00:390:00:42

More than 8 million tonnes of

plastic is dumped in the ocean every

0:00:420:00:45

year, and the UN says it's a

'planetary emergency'.

0:00:450:00:51

The tremendous amount of May plastic

we use in our economy ends up in the

0:01:000:01:04

ocean.

0:01:040:01:06

The ocean has been seen

as a trash dump, where we dump

0:01:060:01:08

everything we don't need.

0:01:080:01:10

And that plastic never

goes away, mostly.

0:01:100:01:11

It floats to the surface,

it falls down to the bottom

0:01:110:01:14

and we urgently need to do

something about it.

0:01:140:01:16

A year ago, eleven-year-old Raghba

had never even played Squash.

0:01:160:01:19

But now she's dreaming of playing

for her country - Syria.

0:01:190:01:21

She trains almost everyday,

focusing on her game and working

0:01:210:01:24

to be quicker on her feet.

0:01:240:01:27

But five years ago, life was very

different for Raghba and her family.

0:01:270:01:30

When they were forced

to leave their home town of Homs

0:01:300:01:32

because of the war in Syria.

0:01:320:01:37

They moved across the border

to Jordan, where they first

0:01:380:01:40

lived in a refugee camp.

0:01:400:01:43

It was when the family moved

to the outskirts of the city that

0:01:430:01:46

Raghba and her sisters got

the chance to try squash.

0:01:460:01:52

She now plays in a team of four

girls and it's not just

0:01:520:01:55

all about the sport either.

0:01:550:02:01

We have training five times a week,

learning to play both squash

0:02:010:02:03

and English, to help them become

competitive squash players,

0:02:030:02:06

so they can compete in tournaments,

both here in Jordan

0:02:060:02:08

and around the world.

0:02:080:02:09

And we also want them

to achieve academic status,

0:02:090:02:11

so they can enrol in schools.

0:02:110:02:13

Squash isn't an overly

popular sport in Syria,

0:02:130:02:15

although lots of people play it

in other countries

0:02:150:02:17

in the Middle East.

0:02:170:02:20

But now Raghba and her team-mates

are hoping to one day go back

0:02:200:02:23

to Syria and share their love

of the sport.

0:02:230:02:28

TRANSLATION:

It's been six months

since I played squash

0:02:290:02:31

and I want to play around the world

and go back to Syria

0:02:310:02:34

and become a coach.

0:02:340:02:35

I want to take part in Arab

and foreign tournaments.

0:02:350:02:42

TRANSLATION:

I like sport

and especially squash

0:02:440:02:45

because when I grow up

I want to travel and compete

0:02:450:02:48

in tournaments around the world

and make Syria and my family proud.

0:02:480:02:55

Best of luck, girls!

I hope you smash it.

0:02:550:03:01

Now to cricket, and the Ashes.

0:03:010:03:02

It wasn't good news for England

yesterday but today they're

0:03:020:03:05

fighting back, on day four

of the second test.

0:03:050:03:07

The teams play five tests over

the course of the competition.

0:03:070:03:10

Australia won the first test,

and England need to do really well

0:03:100:03:13

over the next day and a half to win

the second.

0:03:130:03:17

Now to a lovely tale of a police

officer who rescued a dog

0:03:180:03:21

after Hurricane Irma.

0:03:210:03:22

He's now brought him back to the UK

from the British Virgin Islands.

0:03:220:03:28

Meet Buddy, the lucky labrador

cross, who is now living in the UK.

0:03:280:03:31

Sit.

0:03:310:03:32

Good boy.

0:03:320:03:34

Buddy is a stray.

0:03:340:03:38

He won the heart of a police

officer called John Harvey.

0:03:380:03:40

John was sent from Suffolk Police

to the British Virgin Islands

0:03:400:03:43

to help people after the devastation

of Hurricane Irma.

0:03:430:03:48

He put his paws around my thigh

and just wouldn't let me go, really.

0:03:480:03:51

I was trying to leave

and he was walking with me

0:03:510:03:54

on his back legs and I just thought,

you know, I'd like to

0:03:540:03:57

bring him home if I can.

0:03:570:03:58

And give him a chance

of a better life, really.

0:03:580:04:01

Buddy spent 21 days in Washington,

DC in the US, where vets checked

0:04:010:04:04

that he was healthy and fit,

before he was allowed

0:04:040:04:06

to travel on to the UK.

0:04:060:04:10

It was fantastic, really good to see

him, he was excited, I was excited.

0:04:100:04:14

And it was kind of the start

of the next chapter.

0:04:140:04:23

The pair are now ready

for new adventures together.

0:04:230:04:25

But it can all get

a bit exhausting...

0:04:250:04:35

Don't blame you, Buddy!

0:04:370:04:38

Imagine owning somewhere

as fancy as this!

0:04:380:04:40

But without having to spend loads

and loads of money to buy it!

0:04:400:04:43

Thousands of people across the world

joined together to buy this

0:04:430:04:46

thirteenth century French castle.

0:04:460:04:47

It cost 500,000 euros to buy,

but some people only paid around

0:04:470:04:50

£45 for a share.

0:04:500:04:51

They're now planning to fix it up

and restore it to it's former glory.

0:04:510:04:54

Now to the reason why this

rainbow is record breaking.

0:04:540:04:57

It's because it lasted nearly nine

hours, usually they only stay

0:04:570:04:59

for less than half an hour.

0:04:590:05:01

It was seen over the skies

of Taiwan in East Asia.

0:05:010:05:03

Professors at a university watched

it and said it was there

0:05:030:05:06

from 6:57am to 3:55pm.

0:05:060:05:13

We've put humans on the moon,

sent a rover to Mars and now we've

0:05:150:05:18

sent pizza to space.

0:05:180:05:19

Astronauts on the International

Space Station had their

0:05:190:05:21

very own pizza party.

0:05:210:05:25

The toppings - pepperoni, tomato

sauce, cheese and olives,

0:05:250:05:27

were all sent up on a special supply

ship.

0:05:270:05:29

Commander Randy Bresnik said

the pizzas were

0:05:290:05:31

"flying saucers of the edible kind".

0:05:310:05:35

Well, that's just one

of the best quotes ever!

0:05:350:05:40

That's all from the morning team -

go online for the rest of the day's

0:05:400:05:43

stories including skiing santas and

pictures of the supermoon.

0:05:430:05:46

Hayley will be back

with more at 4:20pm - bye!
