Hi, I'm Ricky!

0:00:040:00:06

You're watching Newsround.

0:00:060:00:08

Coming up on the show today...

0:00:080:00:10

The girl cleaning up after the snow.

0:00:100:00:13

The British star with her own

doll - but who is it?

0:00:130:00:17

The oldest message in a bottle

is discovered in Australia.

0:00:170:00:24

Morning.

0:00:320:00:34

First up, when you walk around

where you live do you ever see

0:00:340:00:39

strange street names and wonder,

"Why did they call it that?"

0:00:390:00:41

Well, you aren't the only one -

so we've done some digging.

0:00:410:00:44

Here's this week's Big Question.

0:00:440:00:50

These might sound

like they are all made

0:00:500:00:53

up places but they are all real!

0:00:530:00:56

It is a clue to this

week's Big Question...

0:00:560:01:02

First, we need to go way

back to the Roman times.

0:01:020:01:06

They brought the idea of roads

as we know them to the UK.

0:01:060:01:09

Before that, we just

travelled on dirt tracks.

0:01:090:01:11

As more roads were

built, it became clear

0:01:110:01:13

that all the new roads needed

names so people knew

0:01:130:01:16

where they were going.

0:01:160:01:17

This started out very simply.

0:01:170:01:21

If it is the main street

in town, guess what?

0:01:210:01:24

It is called Main Street.

0:01:240:01:26

If it is a street that

has a market on it, it

0:01:260:01:28

is probably called...

0:01:280:01:30

In 2017, a research scientist

found that the most

0:01:300:01:33

popular name was High Street.

0:01:330:01:34

There are 2472 in the UK.

0:01:340:01:36

Over years, councils

and builders have had to

0:01:360:01:38

get creative.

0:01:380:01:39

Here is Alan Scott, a town planner

from the Scottish Borders

0:01:390:01:41

here to tell us more.

0:01:410:01:46

Names to be considered

can be suggested for

0:01:460:01:48

various reasons.

0:01:480:01:51

The could be various local people,

local landmarks, plants,

0:01:510:01:53

trees, islands.

0:01:530:01:55

We have even had them

named after golf courses.

0:01:550:01:57

I think that really

has a ring to it.

0:01:570:02:05

Olympic gold medal boxer,

Nicola Adams, has been

0:02:100:02:13

turned into a Barbie doll.

0:02:130:02:13

It's International Women's Day

later this week and Nicola's

0:02:130:02:15

the first star from the UK to join

a special range of Barbie dolls

0:02:150:02:19

designed to honour inspiring women.

0:02:190:02:20

The makers of the doll

say they chose Nicola

0:02:200:02:22

because of her outstanding

contributions to boxing.

0:02:220:02:24

Nicola says she's excited to become

the first ever boxer barbie.

0:02:240:02:28

With all the snow last week,

lots of you have probably been doing

0:02:280:02:31

this.

0:02:310:02:33

But one girl has added a bit

of a twist, by clearing up

0:02:330:02:36

rubbish at the same time.

0:02:360:02:37

Check this out!

0:02:370:02:38

Woah!

0:02:380:02:39

Meet Amelia.

0:02:390:02:40

She is eight and love sledging

0:02:400:02:41

She is eight and loves sledging

0:02:430:02:48

but hates all the rubbish

people leave behind,

0:02:480:02:51

like these broken sleds.

0:02:510:02:53

She is on a mission to clear up

Norwich's sledge trash.

0:02:530:02:56

I was worried about the children

because if they were sledging

0:02:560:02:59

they could cut themselves.

0:02:590:03:00

I was really sad because an animal

could get its head stuck in here.

0:03:000:03:04

Lots of people heard about Amelia's

big clean up and came out to help,

0:03:040:03:07

including this trash-fighting hero.

0:03:070:03:09

Remember Nadia, also

known as Trash Girl,

0:03:090:03:16

who became famous for picking up

litter in Norwich on her bike?

0:03:160:03:20

The fact that Amelia has done

something about it is

0:03:200:03:23

really, really good.

0:03:230:03:24

And Amelia's Dad

is helping out, too.

0:03:240:03:27

She likes being outside and I think

anything that spoils being outside,

0:03:270:03:29

like rubbish and litter,

she wants to do something about it.

0:03:290:03:34

I just thought that everyone

was good and cared about nature,

0:03:340:03:36

but apparently they do not.

0:03:360:03:40

It is getting heavy.

0:03:400:03:42

I'm no surprised, there's

loads of stuff in there.

0:03:420:03:48

This rubbish does not stand

a chance, with not one,

0:03:480:03:50

but two trash girls and their gang

of helpers clearing up.

0:03:500:03:55

It's been good because I've met

someone who's inspired by what I do.

0:03:550:03:58

I am really happy today

because I met my hero.

0:03:580:04:03

So, rubbish of Norwich, watch out,

trash girls are coming to get you!

0:04:030:04:11

Let's get you the

latest stories from

0:04:110:04:12

the world of sport now.

0:04:120:04:18

Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp

believes his side have proved

0:04:180:04:20

they belong in the Champions League

0:04:200:04:22

after they beat Porto over two legs

to reach the quarter-finals

0:04:220:04:25

of the competition.

0:04:250:04:27

The defending European Champions

0:04:270:04:27

Real Madrid are also

through to the quarter-finals

0:04:270:04:29

after beating Paris-Saint

Germain 2-1 last night.

0:04:290:04:31

This towering header from Ronaldo

got the fans excited.

0:04:310:04:33

He's now scored 117 goals

in the Champions League -

0:04:330:04:35

more than any other player.

0:04:350:04:43

And England's women take on the USA

in the SheBelieves Cup -

0:04:430:04:45

knowing that a point will be enough

to win the tournamnet.

0:04:450:04:48

Team USA are the world's best.

0:04:480:04:49

So it will be a real test!

0:04:490:04:54

A robotic arm has

just unveiled the all

0:04:540:04:56

new Formula E race-car.

0:04:560:04:59

The completely electric car has been

totally re-designed.

0:04:590:05:02

It s powered by battery and can

reach speeds of up 174mph.

0:05:020:05:05

So what s different

about this model?

0:05:050:05:08

Well, the battery is now more

powerful than ever before,

0:05:080:05:15

which means drivers don t have

to stop halfway through

0:05:150:05:17

the race to change cars.

0:05:170:05:18

The world's oldest known message

in a bottle has been

0:05:180:05:21

found after 132 years!

0:05:210:05:22

It was found by a family

in Perth in Australia.

0:05:220:05:25

Experts say it was thrown

overboard by the German Navy.

0:05:250:05:29

And was part of an experiment into

the routes boats travelled in 1886.

0:05:290:05:33

If you're off to a trampolining

party this weekend, head

0:05:330:05:36

to our guide about how to stay safe

while you are bouncing

0:05:360:05:39

around with your friends.

0:05:390:05:41

If you're a fan of squirrels

take our quiz - Red Versus Grey.

0:05:410:05:48

It tests how well you know

the two different animals.

0:05:480:05:54

I got four out of five.

0:05:540:05:56

That's your lot from

the Newsround team this morning.

0:05:560:05:58

Have a great day at school.
