Hi there, I'm Martin

and you're watching Newsround.

0:00:080:00:14

First up, thousands

of homes across the UK

0:00:140:00:16

are still without water.

0:00:160:00:18

It's because of a water

shortage and it's meant some

0:00:180:00:21

schools have had to shut.

0:00:210:00:28

It's been pretty cold recently.

0:00:280:00:29

Freezing, in fact.

0:00:290:00:31

And while that's great for sledging

and snowball fights,

0:00:310:00:35

now it's getting warmer,

it is causing problems, like this.

0:00:350:00:38

Leaking and burst water pipes.

0:00:380:00:42

Thousands of homes still don't

have running water.

0:00:420:00:44

In parts of London, people

are relying on bottled water.

0:00:440:00:49

It is the same for people affected

in the south of England

0:00:490:00:51

and some parts of Wales

and Scotland, too.

0:00:510:00:55

The companies which supply

the water have apologised

0:00:550:00:56

and say they are working

to fix the problems.

0:00:560:00:59

But some schools have had to shut

and people are being asked to be

0:00:590:01:02

careful with the amount

of water they use.

0:01:020:01:07

So it might mean another

day without a bath.

0:01:070:01:13

With all the snow recently,

lots of you have probably been doing

0:01:130:01:16

this, but one girl has added a bit

of a twist by clearing up

0:01:160:01:20

rubbish at the same time.

0:01:200:01:21

Check this out!

0:01:210:01:27

Meet Amelia.

0:01:270:01:28

She's eight and loves sledging.

0:01:280:01:30

But hates all the rubbish

people leave behind,

0:01:300:01:33

like these broken sleds.

0:01:330:01:35

So she is on a mission to clear up

Norwich's sledge trash.

0:01:350:01:40

I was worried about the children

because if they were sledging,

0:01:400:01:43

they could cut themselves.

0:01:430:01:46

I was really sad because an animal

could get its head stuck in here.

0:01:460:01:50

Lots of people heard about Amelia's

big clean-up and came out to help,

0:01:500:01:53

including this trash-fighting hero.

0:01:530:02:00

Remember Nadia, also

known as Trash Girl,

0:02:000:02:02

who became famous for picking up

litter in Norwich on her bike?

0:02:020:02:07

The fact that Amelia has done

something about it is

0:02:070:02:11

really, really good.

0:02:110:02:13

And Amelia's dad

is helping out, too.

0:02:130:02:15

She likes being outside and I think

anything that spoils

0:02:150:02:18

being outside for her,

like rubbish and litter,

0:02:180:02:20

she wants to do something about it.

0:02:200:02:23

I just thought that everyone

was good and cared about nature,

0:02:230:02:27

but apparently they don't.

0:02:270:02:31

It is getting heavy.

0:02:310:02:32

I'm not surprised.

0:02:320:02:34

There is loads of stuff in there.

0:02:340:02:36

This rubbish doesn't stand

a chance with not one,

0:02:360:02:38

but two Trash Girls and their gang

of helpers clearing up.

0:02:380:02:40

It has been good because I get

to meet someone who's

0:02:400:02:43

inspired by what I do.

0:02:430:02:44

I'm really happy today

because I met my hero.

0:02:440:02:48

So, rubbish of Norwich, watch out,

Trash Girls are coming to get you!

0:02:480:02:56

Here on Newsround, we've been

travelling the country to hear some

0:02:570:03:01

of your amazing stories.

0:03:010:03:03

This week we're hearing from Nasser

who likes to beatbox.

0:03:030:03:11

HE BEAT BOXES.

0:03:110:03:12

Shorty.

0:03:120:03:15

Different.

0:03:150:03:17

Immigrant.

0:03:170:03:21

These are the words that

I have been labelled as.

0:03:210:03:24

But I am so much more.

0:03:240:03:27

I have been beat boxing

for three years now.

0:03:270:03:30

I think I am actually

quite good at it.

0:03:300:03:32

HE BEAT BOXES.

0:03:320:03:40

I have been dancing

since I was five.

0:03:400:03:43

And I am also a brother.

0:03:430:03:46

A very protective brother.

0:03:460:03:47

I always try to take care

of my sisters in any way possible.

0:03:470:03:52

I was eight or nine I first

experienced racism.

0:03:520:03:55

But after that, it kept

on going on and on and I felt

0:03:550:03:58

a little bit depressed.

0:03:580:04:03

It kind of like puts you down

when people talk to you like that.

0:04:030:04:06

If you have ever experienced

something like I have,

0:04:060:04:09

choose your friends wisely.

0:04:090:04:12

The friends that are going to help

you get through tough times,

0:04:120:04:15

the friends who are always

going to pick you up

0:04:150:04:18

and you are down.

0:04:180:04:19

Friends who are always

going to help you.

0:04:190:04:21

Because those are the friends who

are going to be with you for life.

0:04:210:04:24

Right now in life, I feel amazing.

0:04:240:04:26

Honestly, I think my future

is going to be bright.

0:04:260:04:28

But there are always

bumps in the way.

0:04:280:04:33

Now take a look at this,

it's not your average egg!

0:04:330:04:36

But it did come from a chicken.

0:04:360:04:38

The farm owners in Queensland

in Australia were so egg-cited

0:04:380:04:43

when they cracked the giant egg open

and there was another egg in there!

0:04:430:04:47

Amazing!

0:04:470:04:52

That's it from me.

0:04:520:04:53

Ricky's back in the morning.
