Hi, I'm Ricky winding up your week with some top
stories from Newsround.
Coming up live we've got:
It's a pepperoni party on the motorway!
From pizza to Perseid - how you can watch the incredible
meteor show this weekend
Well first we're heading to the US, where there's been a big rise
in numbers of people trying to cross over to Canada,
the country next door.
There are now so many people trying to get across,
a special camp has been built for them.
Ayshah has this.
Hundreds of people carrying all their belongings wait to cross
the border in the hope of a new life in Canada.
Canada is really, really beautiful, and the people are beautiful.
They help each other.
They've come from lots of different countries, but most of these
migrants are from Haiti, in the Caribbean.
A big earthquake hit the country in 2010 and many
people escaped to the US - but now they're not sure
whether they'll be allowed to stay in America.
That's because President Donald Trump has promised to crack down
on people from other countries who do not have permission
to live in the US.
But for those making the journey, there's no guarantee they'll be
allowed to stay in Canada either.
People hope a lot that things will be better for them
and there will be, something will happen that will allow them to stay
here, but it's a very long and very tiring process,
and the risk of being sent back to their country is real here, too.
And Canada is struggling to cope with its new arrivals.
The city of Montreal has had to turn its Olympic Stadium
into a temporary shelter, and the Canadian military has
started building a camp for people to stay in.
For those people queuing to get into the country,
it's the start of a difficult journey towards starting
another new life.
Next up - how is this for weird?
We've all seen shells and seaweed washed up on a beach
but what about this?
Two 450 metre long pipes have rolled their way
onto the beach at Winterton and Sea Palling in Norfolk.
They came loose whilst being transported to North Africa
and ten more pipes are still out there somewhere.
And they're not the only strange things to find
their way onto the shore - get to newsround online
for the weirdest things to wash up on beach.
The World Athletics Championships come to an end in London but not
before Britain's greatest athlete, Mo Farah, runs one of his last
races on the track.
So lets take a look at those magic Mo Moments.
Mo Farah celebrating a win has become a familiar sight,
and he's hoping for yet another at the 5000 metres on Saturday,
one of his last ever races before he retires.
But let's back up a moment and go back to the start.
Mo moved from Somalia in Africa to England
when he was only eight years old.
He barely knew a word of English, but it was here that he first
realised he could run - and fast!
From then on, there was no stopping him.
His first major win came in 2011 when he took gold in the 5000m
at the World Championships in South Korea.
Mo moved to the US and trained hard in some tough
conditions, but it paid off.
He stormed the London 2012 Olympics, picking up two golds and, of course,
celebrating with his famous Mobot.
Mo took the double again at Rio, and another gold in last week's
10,000m sealed his place as one of the greatest British
athletes of all time.
Stargazers are in for a treat this weekend
with the Perseid Meteor Shower expected in our skies.
But what is it and how can you watch it?
So this weekend marks the peak of the Perseid Meteor Shower.
Last night you might have got to see a few
shooting stars, but over the next couple of nights, you'll get a
chance to see some more.
But, we need some cloudless skies, and unfortunately,
tonight it doesn't look that great.
At best, north-east England, north-east Scotland might get some
Saturday night, however, looks much better.
You will have to be up late, or get up early
in the morning to catch the best of those shooting stars.
You may see as many as 100 in a minute or
so falling from the night sky.
And last up, to an accident that turned into a slice
of something rather yummy.
A lorry in America accidentally scraped under a bridge
and ripped open its trailer, spilling hundreds of frozen pizzas
all over the motorway!
No one was hurt but the road had to be closed while the pepperoni
pizzas were cleared up.
It sure opened up the truck and it spilled all the
contents, and it had all
this frozen pizza inside.
So, we have got frozen pizza all over the
That's all from me, Newsround's back right here in about half an hour.
