Hi, Ayshah here.

0:00:040:00:06

Your top stories on Newsround today.

0:00:060:00:08

We get ready for tonight's

Brit Awards and...

0:00:080:00:12

Why this baby rhino and his mum have

only just been reunited.

0:00:120:00:20

First to the US.

0:00:250:00:26

After an attack at a school

in Florida last week,

0:00:260:00:29

students there have been making

a stand against guns.

0:00:290:00:32

BBC reporter Paul Blake has

travelled with the pupils who're

0:00:320:00:35

talking to politicians

about the changes they want.

0:00:350:00:39

All of the students on board

are survivors of the school shooting

0:00:390:00:43

that happened last week in the city

of Parkland in South Florida.

0:00:430:00:46

Last week's attack is the sixth

gun attack on a school

0:00:460:00:49

in the US this year.

0:00:490:00:51

Today we are on our way to the state

capitol to speak to some lawmakers

0:00:510:00:56

in charge there about ways we can

make our schools safer

0:00:560:00:59

and ways to place controls

on guns in our country.

0:00:590:01:05

I do not feel safe in my school.

0:01:050:01:08

I was incredibly afraid.

0:01:080:01:10

I was scared for all my friends,

I was scared for my little

0:01:100:01:13

sister and everyone there.

0:01:130:01:15

They need to know that that should

never ever happen to anybody else,

0:01:150:01:19

no one should have to feel the fear

that I felt.

0:01:190:01:23

We want to talk to lobby groups

about making laws more strict

0:01:230:01:25

so that less people have access

to guns and other weapons,

0:01:250:01:29

so less kids get hurt.

0:01:290:01:31

The students are not alone.

0:01:310:01:32

Many people in the United States

want the gun laws made tougher but,

0:01:320:01:36

at the same time, many people want

them to remain the same.

0:01:360:01:40

In recent years politicians have

decided to keep the gun

0:01:400:01:42

laws mostly unchanged.

0:01:420:01:45

But the students on board the bus

today say that they think they can

0:01:450:01:48

convince the politicians to make

the gun laws safer and they drove

0:01:480:01:52

eight hours today to

talk to them about it.

0:01:520:01:55

I'm so proud of all my friends.

0:01:550:01:57

We are young, not much older

than you are, but we are really

0:01:570:02:00

making a big difference I think.

0:02:000:02:02

Many of these students

have never been involved

0:02:020:02:03

with politics but they say

they are just getting started.

0:02:030:02:06

Next month they will go

all the way to Washington,

0:02:060:02:08

DC where they say they will hold

a protest and tell the adults

0:02:080:02:11

that they need to do more to keep

America's kids safe.

0:02:110:02:14

And if you want to know

more about this story,

0:02:140:02:16

you can go online right now.

0:02:160:02:19

Also if you're upset by any

of the things you see in the news,

0:02:190:02:22

we have loads of advice

for you there too.

0:02:220:02:29

It s the BRITS tonight,

the biggest event in British

0:02:290:02:35

I've been finding out some weird

and fun facts about it?

0:02:350:02:39

Five things you might not

know about the Brits.

0:02:390:02:45

Different categories come and go.

0:02:450:02:47

One year there was the Best

British Comedy Record.

0:02:470:02:51

And in 2013 one Direction

got the catchy title

0:02:510:02:54

of Brits Global Success Award.

0:02:540:02:55

That's it, I'm making

up my own award, Best Dancing

0:02:550:02:58

Newsround Presenter.

0:02:580:02:59

Sorry, Ricky.

0:02:590:03:02

The reason why we have the Brits

is because of the Queen.

0:03:020:03:05

Seriously, it all started back

in 1977 to mark her silver jubilee.

0:03:050:03:10

It is now in its 30th

year and showcasing all

0:03:100:03:13

of Britain's best music talent.

0:03:130:03:21

The statue is meant to be a female

personification of Britain.

0:03:210:03:24

That's a big word!

0:03:240:03:28

Basically it's meant to be a female

symbol of the UK which is why

0:03:280:03:31

it is shaped like this.

0:03:310:03:34

A famous British artist

designs it every year.

0:03:340:03:39

Most awards are voted

for by just 1000 people.

0:03:390:03:41

These guys are really

into their music.

0:03:410:03:44

DJs and record labels choose

who they think are the best artists.

0:03:440:03:48

But this year two

categories are up to you.

0:03:480:03:51

That is the British

Artist Video of the Year

0:03:510:03:54

and the British Breakthrough act.

0:03:540:03:57

And finally, it's a massive

social media event.

0:03:570:04:01

In 2016 when One Direction

won Best British Band

0:04:010:04:04

they broke the Internet.

0:04:040:04:07

Well, they didn't actually break it,

but it was the most talked

0:04:070:04:10

about event on Twitter that year

in the UK.

0:04:100:04:14

I wonder what we'll be

talking about this year?

0:04:140:04:22

And we'll bring you all the BRITs

winners tomorrow on Newsround.

0:04:220:04:24

Next up, a white rhino

that was looked after and fed

0:04:240:04:27

entirely by people has been reunited

with its mother.

0:04:270:04:31

Introducing Belle -

she was named after the character

0:04:310:04:33

in Beauty and the Beast.

0:04:330:04:36

And she lives at

Cotswold Wildlife Park.

0:04:360:04:38

She needed extra special treatment

for an injured leg after birth.

0:04:380:04:40

A team of zoo keepers

were with her 24-hours a day

0:04:400:04:43

until she could be reintroduced

to her mother Nancy.

0:04:430:04:48

They even had to sleep with her.

0:04:480:04:53

Thanks for watching.

0:04:530:04:55

Ricky's back in the morning.
