We'll also reveal the winners

of this week's Top Tekkers.

0:00:000:00:02

Will it be Anthony Martial

or Roberto Firmino?

0:00:020:00:04

See you!

0:00:040:00:11

Hi, Ayshah here with your

Friday morning Newsround.

0:00:150:00:17

And it's a big day for sport fans -

the opening ceremony

0:00:170:00:20

for the Winter Paralympics

in PyeongChang is

0:00:200:00:21

later this morning.

0:00:210:00:23

It will be the largest ever

Winter Paralympics, with a record

0:00:230:00:25

567 athletes competing.

0:00:250:00:29

Team GB are taking part in five

sports and have an ambitious target

0:00:290:00:32

to meet, aiming to scoop between six

and twelve medals.

0:00:320:00:38

Of course, we'll be keeping you up

to date with all of the highlights

0:00:380:00:41

from the Games over

the next ten days.

0:00:410:00:43

Next, it's six months

since Hurricane Irma swept

0:00:430:00:45

across the Caribbean islands.

0:00:450:00:48

It was the worst hurricane

there's ever been.

0:00:480:00:51

BBC reporter Paul Blake is visiting

the British Virgin Islands to find

0:00:510:00:54

out how the area's recovering.

0:00:540:01:02

Hey, Newsround. Over the last six

months, people in the British Virgin

0:01:020:01:06

Islands have been busy rebuilding

and cleaning up after Hurricane

0:01:060:01:10

Irma. The hurricane spread a lot of

debris and rubbish all across the

0:01:100:01:14

island. It's a people's houses,

boats, cars. Workers have been busy

0:01:140:01:19

collecting it and moving it to a

dump -- bits of peoples houses. Lots

0:01:190:01:24

of houses and offices are still

damaged and builders are working

0:01:240:01:28

every day to try to repair them.

All the schoolkids are back in

0:01:280:01:33

class, many are attending schools

that are not their own because their

0:01:330:01:37

classrooms are still damaged.

Many people here hope the workers

0:01:370:01:40

can start to repairs and school

buildings soon.

0:01:400:01:43

Lots of progress has been made on

the British Virgin Islands but there

0:01:430:01:47

is a lot of work to do. The next

hurricane season begins in less than

0:01:470:01:51

three months and people here say

they want to be as prepared as

0:01:510:01:54

possible for the next storm.

Thanks, Paul.

0:01:540:01:57

Sport now and Arsenal surprised

everyone with their form against AC

0:01:570:01:59

Milan in the Europa League last

night.

0:01:590:02:01

They won 2-0 in Italy,

with Henrik Mkhitaryan

0:02:010:02:03

and Aaron Ramsey scoring the goals.

0:02:030:02:04

That's their frist victory after

a run of four defeats in a row.

0:02:040:02:07

They'll play the second

leg of the match at

0:02:070:02:10

the Emirates next Thursday.

0:02:100:02:14

And in tennis, Serena's back!

0:02:140:02:16

She's returned to the women's tour

and has just won her first

0:02:160:02:19

match at the Indian Wells

tournament in America.

0:02:190:02:22

Serena took a year off to have her

baby girl Alexis Olympia.

0:02:220:02:28

How do we get rid of

plastics in our oceans?

0:02:280:02:31

It's a problem that

lots of you care about -

0:02:310:02:33

and it's had a huge amount

of attention recently.

0:02:330:02:36

Well, there's a new project

which is trying to help.

0:02:360:02:39

Dan's in Brighton

for us this morning.

0:02:390:02:41

Hi, Dan.

0:02:410:02:49

Good morning. Look at the amount of

plastic we found on the beach this

0:02:490:02:53

morning. Look at all that rubbish

that has been collected in the last

0:02:530:02:57

hour or so. There is a new project

to try to clean up the beaches, get

0:02:570:03:01

rid of the plastic using one of

these, a drone camera. The idea is

0:03:010:03:06

people can take pictures of the

beach, click where it is and get it

0:03:060:03:12

cleaned up. Eddie is flying the

drone, is it that simple?

Yes, we

0:03:120:03:17

need everybody whether young, old,

scientist not a scientist, to log in

0:03:170:03:22

and help us by tagging the plastics

in the images. We are part of

0:03:220:03:27

British Science Week running until

the 18th of March. If you can speak

0:03:270:03:31

to your school and teachers, get

your class to log on and tag, it is

0:03:310:03:37

a fun game and you can help us to

map the plastics the country.

Will

0:03:370:03:42

that clean up our beaches?

It builds

a map of where the plastic is, we

0:03:420:03:47

can send volunteers and local

councils to send resources to

0:03:470:03:53

collect the plastic.

Laura, you are

with the Marine Conservation

0:03:530:03:57

Association?

We found 780 bits of

litter per hundred metres, that is

0:03:570:04:04

huge. We can do very simple steps,

do you need a straw? Most people

0:04:040:04:10

don't. Renee campaign, say I do not

need to be taking this straw, local

0:04:100:04:16

businesses can do the same.

Nice to talk to you this morning,

0:04:160:04:20

thanks, guys. The issue of plastics

is a huge problem. Lots of debate on

0:04:200:04:25

how we can cut down the amount of

rubbish in the sea and on the

0:04:250:04:29

beaches.

Thank you. That is all we have from

0:04:290:04:32
