Hi, I'm Ricky winding up your week with some top

0:00:050:00:07

stories from Newsround.

0:00:070:00:09

Coming up live we've got:

0:00:090:00:11

Dough!

0:00:110:00:12

It's a pepperoni party on the motorway!

0:00:120:00:22

From pizza to Perseid - how you can watch the incredible

0:00:260:00:29

meteor show this weekend

0:00:290:00:30

Well first we're heading to the US, where there's been a big rise

0:00:300:00:34

in numbers of people trying to cross over to Canada,

0:00:340:00:36

the country next door.

0:00:360:00:37

There are now so many people trying to get across,

0:00:370:00:39

a special camp has been built for them.

0:00:390:00:41

Ayshah has this.

0:00:410:00:45

Hundreds of people carrying all their belongings wait to cross

0:00:450:00:49

the border in the hope of a new life in Canada.

0:00:490:00:53

Canada is really, really beautiful, and the people are beautiful.

0:00:530:00:58

They help each other.

0:00:580:01:00

They've come from lots of different countries, but most of these

0:01:000:01:03

migrants are from Haiti, in the Caribbean.

0:01:030:01:06

A big earthquake hit the country in 2010 and many

0:01:060:01:09

people escaped to the US - but now they're not sure

0:01:090:01:12

whether they'll be allowed to stay in America.

0:01:120:01:14

That's because President Donald Trump has promised to crack down

0:01:140:01:17

on people from other countries who do not have permission

0:01:170:01:20

to live in the US.

0:01:200:01:23

But for those making the journey, there's no guarantee they'll be

0:01:230:01:25

allowed to stay in Canada either.

0:01:250:01:28

People hope a lot that things will be better for them

0:01:280:01:33

and there will be, something will happen that will allow them to stay

0:01:330:01:36

here, but it's a very long and very tiring process,

0:01:360:01:42

and the risk of being sent back to their country is real here, too.

0:01:420:01:46

And Canada is struggling to cope with its new arrivals.

0:01:460:01:48

The city of Montreal has had to turn its Olympic Stadium

0:01:480:01:51

into a temporary shelter, and the Canadian military has

0:01:510:01:53

started building a camp for people to stay in.

0:01:530:01:55

For those people queuing to get into the country,

0:01:550:01:57

it's the start of a difficult journey towards starting

0:01:570:01:59

another new life.

0:01:590:02:00

Next up - how is this for weird?

0:02:000:02:02

We've all seen shells and seaweed washed up on a beach

0:02:020:02:05

but what about this?

0:02:050:02:06

Two 450 metre long pipes have rolled their way

0:02:060:02:08

onto the beach at Winterton and Sea Palling in Norfolk.

0:02:080:02:10

They came loose whilst being transported to North Africa

0:02:100:02:13

and ten more pipes are still out there somewhere.

0:02:130:02:18

And they're not the only strange things to find

0:02:180:02:21

their way onto the shore - get to newsround online

0:02:210:02:23

for the weirdest things to wash up on beach.

0:02:230:02:25

The World Athletics Championships come to an end in London but not

0:02:250:02:29

before Britain's greatest athlete, Mo Farah, runs one of his last

0:02:290:02:32

races on the track.

0:02:320:02:37

So lets take a look at those magic Mo Moments.

0:02:370:02:39

Mo Farah celebrating a win has become a familiar sight,

0:02:390:02:44

and he's hoping for yet another at the 5000 metres on Saturday,

0:02:440:02:47

one of his last ever races before he retires.

0:02:470:02:51

But let's back up a moment and go back to the start.

0:02:510:02:55

Mo moved from Somalia in Africa to England

0:02:550:02:57

when he was only eight years old.

0:02:570:03:01

He barely knew a word of English, but it was here that he first

0:03:010:03:05

realised he could run - and fast!

0:03:050:03:06

From then on, there was no stopping him.

0:03:060:03:08

His first major win came in 2011 when he took gold in the 5000m

0:03:080:03:12

at the World Championships in South Korea.

0:03:120:03:15

Mo moved to the US and trained hard in some tough

0:03:150:03:18

conditions, but it paid off.

0:03:180:03:21

He stormed the London 2012 Olympics, picking up two golds and, of course,

0:03:210:03:24

celebrating with his famous Mobot.

0:03:240:03:28

Mo took the double again at Rio, and another gold in last week's

0:03:280:03:32

10,000m sealed his place as one of the greatest British

0:03:320:03:35

athletes of all time.

0:03:350:03:41

Stargazers are in for a treat this weekend

0:03:410:03:43

with the Perseid Meteor Shower expected in our skies.

0:03:430:03:46

But what is it and how can you watch it?

0:03:460:03:49

Let's see.

0:03:490:03:50

So this weekend marks the peak of the Perseid Meteor Shower.

0:03:500:03:54

Last night you might have got to see a few

0:03:540:03:56

shooting stars, but over the next couple of nights, you'll get a

0:03:560:04:00

chance to see some more.

0:04:000:04:02

But, we need some cloudless skies, and unfortunately,

0:04:020:04:04

tonight it doesn't look that great.

0:04:040:04:07

At best, north-east England, north-east Scotland might get some

0:04:070:04:12

clearer spells.

0:04:120:04:14

Saturday night, however, looks much better.

0:04:140:04:16

You will have to be up late, or get up early

0:04:160:04:18

in the morning to catch the best of those shooting stars.

0:04:180:04:21

You may see as many as 100 in a minute or

0:04:210:04:23

so falling from the night sky.

0:04:230:04:25

And last up, to an accident that turned into a slice

0:04:250:04:27

of something rather yummy.

0:04:270:04:29

A lorry in America accidentally scraped under a bridge

0:04:290:04:33

and ripped open its trailer, spilling hundreds of frozen pizzas

0:04:330:04:35

all over the motorway!

0:04:350:04:36

No one was hurt but the road had to be closed while the pepperoni

0:04:360:04:39

pizzas were cleared up.

0:04:390:04:40

Dough!

0:04:400:04:49

It sure opened up the truck and it spilled all the

0:04:490:04:51

contents, and it had all

0:04:510:04:52

this frozen pizza inside.

0:04:520:04:54

So, we have got frozen pizza all over the

0:04:540:04:56

Interstate.

0:04:560:04:57

That's all from me, Newsround's back right here in about half an hour.

0:04:570:05:01

My favourite shows are Horrible Histories...

0:05:020:05:06

and I really like Wolfblood, too,
