Morning - I'm Ricky,

and this is Newsround.

0:00:130:00:15

First to the US, where flash floods

and mudslides have caused loads

0:00:150:00:18

of damage in southern California.

0:00:180:00:22

Rescue teams are trying to help

people after heavy rains

0:00:220:00:26

turned roads into rivers.

0:00:260:00:27

Witnesses have described large

rocks, the size of small cars,

0:00:270:00:30

rolling down hills, blocking roads

and destroying houses.

0:00:300:00:34

Police say more than 100 people have

been taken to hospital.

0:00:340:00:37

At least 13 people have died.

0:00:370:00:41

Gay people can get married

everywhere in the UK apart

0:00:410:00:45

from in Northern Ireland.

0:00:450:00:47

Two women or two men have been able

to marry in England,

0:00:470:00:50

Scotland and Wales since 2014.

0:00:500:00:51

Martin's been speaking

to Northern Ireland, to find out

0:00:510:00:53

what people there think.

0:00:530:00:57

We're all just people

and we should have equal rights,

0:00:570:00:59

no matter who we are.

0:00:590:01:00

These kids set up this group

so there would be somewhere

0:01:000:01:04

for people who are gay and straight

to chat about things

0:01:040:01:07

that affect them.

0:01:070:01:08

And one big issue that comes up

again and again is gay marriage,

0:01:080:01:12

which isn't allowed in Northern

Ireland.

0:01:120:01:16

I think it's old-fashioned and a bit

slow of the people making the laws.

0:01:160:01:23

It's unfair, because if say when I'm

older and I did truly love someone

0:01:230:01:26

and wanted to get married,

it just means that I

0:01:260:01:29

can't really do that.

0:01:290:01:30

If I could sit in front of people

that have the decision to change

0:01:300:01:33

this, I would tell them,

"What are you doing?"

0:01:330:01:35

Right now I shouldn't even be

here discussing why gay

0:01:350:01:37

marriage isn't a thing,

because it should

0:01:370:01:39

already be a thing here.

0:01:390:01:41

There's like a lot of people

in our area who don't actually know

0:01:410:01:44

that gay marriage still isn't legal

in Northern Ireland.

0:01:440:01:48

Eventually it will change.

0:01:480:01:50

I think we're just putting it off.

0:01:500:01:53

But obviously it's going to happen.

0:01:530:01:56

For Alice, there is another reason

why it's important to her that gay

0:01:560:01:59

people should be able to marry.

0:01:590:02:03

Her uncle is gay and lives

in the Republic of Ireland,

0:02:030:02:05

where gay marriage is allowed,

after moving from Northern Ireland.

0:02:050:02:10

How was it knowing that you couldn't

get married even if you wanted

0:02:100:02:13

to in Northern Ireland?

0:02:130:02:15

What it does do is it

tells you that you're not

0:02:150:02:17

the same as everybody else -

you're not allowed the same

0:02:170:02:20

freedoms as everybody else.

0:02:200:02:22

And a lot of other people

in Northern Ireland want

0:02:220:02:24

the laws to change.

0:02:240:02:25

In a recent poll, over two thirds

of people here said they think gay

0:02:250:02:29

marriage should be allowed.

0:02:290:02:32

The biggest political party

here is called the DUP.

0:02:320:02:36

And I'm just outside

their headquarters in Belfast.

0:02:360:02:41

The DUP don't believe in gay

marriage, and that's a big reason

0:02:410:02:44

why it hasn't happened

in Northern Ireland -

0:02:440:02:46

unlike England, Wales and Scotland.

0:02:460:02:51

Now we wanted to speak

to someone from the DUP,

0:02:510:02:54

but no one wanted to be interviewed.

0:02:540:02:57

But someone who would

speak to us was John.

0:02:570:02:59

He is a Christian.

0:02:590:03:00

He thinks that gay marriage

is against what is religion teaches.

0:03:000:03:06

In the Bible I believe that marriage

is something that we didn't create -

0:03:060:03:09

it's something that was given to us

as a gift by God.

0:03:090:03:12

I think God suggests that

marriage is something

0:03:120:03:14

between a man and a woman.

0:03:140:03:15

I think it's important that

all people are treated well,

0:03:150:03:20

all people are treated with dignity,

all people are respected,

0:03:200:03:22

no matter their creed,

colour or sexual orientation.

0:03:220:03:26

And I think that is fair.

0:03:260:03:29

They're hard to see, but you can

probably find them in your

0:03:310:03:35

bathroom at home -

I'm talking about microbeads.

0:03:350:03:38

The UK has just banned them -

but what exactly are they?

0:03:380:03:41

Here's Ayshah.

0:03:410:03:43

Microbeads are a tiny

balls of plastic smaller

0:03:430:03:45

than five millimetres -

roughly the size of a grain of sand.

0:03:450:03:49

They're used in some shower gels,

face washes and toothpaste to help

0:03:490:03:53

add that extra scrub.

0:03:530:03:55

But now the UK has banned making

products containing them.

0:03:550:03:57

Why?

0:03:570:04:00

They say trillions of microbeads end

up in the world's oceans,

0:04:000:04:05

lakes and rivers, and that harms

the sea life who eat them

0:04:050:04:08

or breathe them in by mistake.

0:04:080:04:09

Just one shower can lead

to 100,000 plastic particles

0:04:090:04:13

going into the ocean.

0:04:130:04:14

Many companies have already

taken steps to remove

0:04:140:04:18

microbeads from their stuff.

0:04:180:04:20

And although making things with them

has now been banned,

0:04:200:04:22

microbeads won't be removed

from shops completely

0:04:220:04:24

until later this year.

0:04:240:04:28

Environmental campaigners hope

a worldwide ban will soon follow.

0:04:280:04:32

Manchester City came from behind

to beat Bristol City

0:04:370:04:39

in their League Cup

semi-final first leg match.

0:04:390:04:41

Bristol City took the lead

from the penalty spot

0:04:410:04:43

through Bobby Reid

at the Etihad Stadium.

0:04:430:04:46

Kevin de Bruyne then

equalised for Man City,

0:04:460:04:48

before substitute Sergio Aguero

scored this late injury-time winner.

0:04:480:04:54

It means Manchester City take a 2-1

lead into their second match

0:04:540:04:57

in a couple of weeks.

0:04:570:04:58

That's it from us.

0:04:580:04:59

We'll see you in just

over half an hour.
