Morning, Hayley here

with your Saturday Newsround.

0:00:130:00:17

First up, Team GB have

bagged their second medal

0:00:170:00:19

at the Winter Olympics.

0:00:190:00:22

Izzy Atkin has won bronze in the ski

slopestyle competition,

0:00:220:00:25

with amazing moves like these.

0:00:250:00:30

And there could be more medals

today, with both Laura Deas

0:00:300:00:33

and Lizzy Yarnold up

for the women's skeleton.

0:00:330:00:40

Football now.

0:00:400:00:41

The next round of the famous FA Cup

competition got under way last

0:00:410:00:45

night but there were no

big, shock results.

0:00:450:00:47

Chelsea beat Championship

side Hull City 4-0,

0:00:470:00:49

including this amazing goal

from Brazilian player Willian.

0:00:490:00:50

In the night's other match,

a Jamie Vardy header was enough

0:00:500:00:55

to give Leicester a 1-0 victory over

Championship side Sheffield United.

0:00:550:00:58

Next, we're talking about plastic,

it seems that nowhere in the world

0:00:580:01:01

is safe from plastic pollution.

0:01:010:01:06

Researchers are concerned

after finding that a huge amount

0:01:060:01:08

of this waste is now

reaching the Arctic.

0:01:080:01:10

Here's Ricky.

0:01:100:01:14

From a distance these beautiful

shores on the Arctic coastline of

0:01:140:01:16

Norway look pristine, unspoiled.

0:01:160:01:21

But take a closer look and it's

a very different picture.

0:01:210:01:25

The plastic polluting our

oceans has now made it

0:01:250:01:27

to the so far relatively

untouched Arctic.

0:01:270:01:31

Just last year we, I think

we tipped 30 tonnes.

0:01:310:01:34

Brought in household litter, food

wrapping, bottles.

0:01:340:01:41

But one of the biggest causes

of the plastic pollution in

0:01:410:01:44

the area is fishing.

0:01:440:01:45

Bits of rope and netting can

be found everywhere,

0:01:450:01:47

and it's having an impact

on the local wildlife.

0:01:470:01:53

The rubbish comes from all over

Europe and even as far

0:01:530:01:56

away as America.

0:01:560:01:58

I mean, you can throw

things into the ocean in

0:01:580:02:01

Florida and think,

I've thrown it away.

0:02:010:02:04

And then it might end

up here on our shores.

0:02:040:02:08

Bo Ede has made it his mission

to pick up as much of the

0:02:080:02:12

litter as he can around

these Norwegian fjords.

0:02:120:02:15

What to say?

0:02:150:02:19

It's so obvious that

what we are doing

0:02:190:02:27

here is like the tip

of the tip of the iceberg.

0:02:270:02:32

But it's the visible tip really,

this is what is readily

0:02:320:02:35

available.

0:02:350:02:36

I mean, I pick up this little piece

of litter and it's gone, it won't go

0:02:360:02:40

out to sea again.

0:02:400:02:41

It helps.

0:02:410:02:42

Next meet Zeppy - he's a flying,

bicycle riding, water floating,

0:02:420:02:44

balloon lifting machine.

0:02:440:02:46

Designed by Frenchman Stephan Rusoe,

who's hoping to travel 100 miles

0:02:460:02:51

over the Mediterranean Sea

later this year.

0:02:510:02:56

The scene needs to be flat with wind

speeds of less than three miles an

0:02:560:03:00

hour, so good luck with that.

0:03:000:03:01

That's it from me for now,

join us at 12.15 for more of what's
