Hello, I'm Jenny, you're watching Newsround live on CBBC.

0:00:040:00:07

Coming up in the next few minutes: The Brits

0:00:070:00:10

storming through to the next round of Wimbledon.

0:00:100:00:13

The cheeky monkeys causing a problem in Gibraltar.

0:00:130:00:16

And we find out what it takes to be a fire fighting dog!

0:00:160:00:24

First to tennis, and a massive day for the Brits at Wimbledon

0:00:310:00:34

yesterday, with two players through to the quarter finals,

0:00:340:00:36

for the first time in 44 years!

0:00:360:00:38

Two time champ Andy Murray reached the quarter-finals

0:00:380:00:40

for the tenth year in a row, thanks to a win over Benoit Paire.

0:00:400:00:43

He'll take on Sam Querry tomorrow.

0:00:430:00:45

After some injury worries before the tournament,

0:00:450:00:47

he feels he's back on track.

0:00:470:00:50

Two weeks ago I was resting, so, you know, I was a little concerned.

0:00:500:00:56

When you are having issues just a few

0:00:560:00:58

days before a big event, it is frustrating, but I did well

0:00:580:01:02

and I think I've played some good stuff.

0:01:020:01:05

Today, like I said, was the best I've played so far in the

0:01:050:01:08

tournament.

0:01:080:01:09

And, yes, I'm doing well, so hopefully keep it up.

0:01:090:01:14

And the last British woman to win Wimbledon

0:01:140:01:16

was Virginia Wade, back in 1977.

0:01:160:01:20

Could Johanna Konta be the next?

0:01:200:01:22

She's already the first British woman through to the quarter

0:01:220:01:25

finals for 33 years, after a really tough three-set win

0:01:250:01:27

over Caroleen Garcia from France yesterday.

0:01:270:01:31

She takes on Simona Halep this afternoon.

0:01:310:01:34

It's those positions, those situations that you, well,

0:01:340:01:37

that I dream of, dreamt of when I was little girl.

0:01:370:01:41

Even now, to be a part of those battles, on big

0:01:410:01:44

stages, so I think that's really what it's about to be a athlete.

0:01:440:01:51

News about some of the other favourites.

0:01:510:01:53

Roger Federer is through - but Rafael Nadal isout.

0:01:530:01:58

Roger Federer is through - but Rafael Nadal is out.

0:01:580:02:01

Gilles Muller beat the two-time champion in an epic five-setter.

0:02:010:02:03

It was 15-13 in the decider and the pair were on court

0:02:030:02:06

for nearly five hours - meaning Novak Djokovic's match

0:02:060:02:08

was delayed until today.

0:02:080:02:11

It's monkey vs human.

0:02:110:02:13

The cheeky wild monkeys on Gibraltar are having a bit of a row

0:02:130:02:16

with the people living there, but now a charity has come along

0:02:160:02:19

to try and keep the peace.

0:02:190:02:21

Ayshah has more.

0:02:210:02:25

Look at these lot, hanging about, being cute, monkeying around.

0:02:250:02:29

Wait, did he just steal fruit?

0:02:290:02:31

The Barbary macaques are the only wild monkey left in Europe.

0:02:310:02:35

Tourists love them, but the people who live here, not so much.

0:02:350:02:39

They know how to open your car door, they

0:02:390:02:41

know when you wander down in town and you've left the kitchen

0:02:410:02:44

window open.

0:02:440:02:45

They know what a refrigerator is, they know how to

0:02:450:02:48

pull the handle open open and help themselves.

0:02:480:02:51

pull the handle open and help themselves.

0:02:510:02:53

Refrigerators, eh?

0:02:530:02:54

I would be devo'd if they stole my chocolate.

0:02:540:02:56

These monkeys might be troublesome, but

0:02:560:02:58

they're also rare.

0:02:580:02:59

There are only 225 of them in Europe, and...

0:02:590:03:01

They're the last free ranging primates in the

0:03:010:03:03

whole of Europe.

0:03:030:03:04

And they are on the endangered species list, and if

0:03:040:03:06

we're not careful, they will disappear off the face of the earth.

0:03:060:03:09

So, to keep the peace, a charity have set up special

0:03:090:03:12

feeding stations away from homes, where the monkeys can

0:03:120:03:14

get their grub.

0:03:140:03:17

Let's hope they can all live together in perfect

0:03:170:03:19

harmony.

0:03:190:03:23

Tackling a blaze isn't just a job for firefighters -

0:03:230:03:25

fire dogs play an important role, too!

0:03:250:03:28

This is Scrappy, he helps the fire teams in the North East of England.

0:03:280:03:33

But he's now putting his paws up and retiring.

0:03:330:03:35

So who will get his job, and what does it take to be

0:03:350:03:38

a brilliant fire dog?

0:03:380:03:41

Meet Scrappy, County Durham and Darlington Fire Service's very

0:03:410:03:45

special dog.

0:03:450:03:47

He puts his fire protection boots on and then he's

0:03:470:03:50

off, helping the firefighters.

0:03:500:03:53

In fact, he's so good at his job, he's been given a special award

0:03:530:03:56

by a nearby university.

0:03:560:03:59

He can detect material that we are looking for as

0:03:590:04:02

evidence at a metre deep and up to 21 days after the fire, which is

0:04:020:04:06

really, really good.

0:04:060:04:08

He's brilliant at his job, but it's time for

0:04:080:04:11

Scrappy to retire, and a team are looking for his replacement.

0:04:110:04:15

So, what makes a good fire dog?

0:04:150:04:18

We like having cockers.

0:04:180:04:20

Cockers, easy to train, very intelligent, good with

0:04:200:04:23

kids.

0:04:230:04:25

And this is lightweight, we can boost him up all over the place

0:04:250:04:28

to do searches.

0:04:280:04:30

He's quite happy on a ladder with me.

0:04:300:04:32

And he will climb a platform as well, which allows us

0:04:320:04:35

high access if we need to get into blocks

0:04:350:04:38

or flats and that sort of

0:04:380:04:39

thing.

0:04:390:04:40

Well, the hunt is on, but it's not going to be easy finding a dog

0:04:400:04:43

that can fill Scrappy's fire boots.

0:04:430:04:50

That's all from the team for now, Newsround's back right here at 8.15,

0:04:500:04:53

when we'll be finding out more about Jupiter's famous red spot.

0:04:530:04:56

Don't miss it.

0:04:560:04:56

The Dumping Ground - I'm Floss...

0:05:100:05:11

I'm Rhys, but she's Floss. ..is coming up next.

0:05:110:05:13

And today's Faves At 5 is brand-new The Next Step. Oh, yes!

0:05:130:05:16
