Hi, I'm Martin and this is your Sunday Newsround.


And the raccoons who chose life on the road.


First, American President Donald Trump has accused the newspapers


and TV news of being untruthful over the number of people


Mr Trump said "it looked like" 1.5 million people had been


there when he spoke at the US Capital Washington on Friday.


However, photographs appear to show that not as many people attended


as did for Barack Obama back in 2009.


Millions of protestors took to the streets yesterday to march


against the new president, Donald Trump.


They were marching to show their support for gender


equality and gay rights, which protestors think will be under


More than 600 marches took place all over the world,


with the biggest in America's capital Washington, DC, where around


Footy next, and Wayne Rooney has become Manchester United's all-time


The England striker scored this absolute belter in injury-time


to equalise against Stoke yesterday, which was his 250th for United,


breaking Sir Bobby Charlton's 44-year-old record.


This week everyone has been talking about Brexit,


which is when the UK will leave a club of countries called


Here's Ricky to explain what some of the big words mean.


I'm glad someone's going to explain them to me.


If you've been watching the news lately you will


Brexit. Brexit.


Control. Immigration.


Article 50. Exiting the EU.


No, it's not the name of a new breakfast cereal.


It's simply two words put together, "Britain" and "exit".


Last year, adults in the UK voted to leave the European Union,


which is a bit like a club, only this club is made up of 28


The UK has been part of it for more than 40 years,


but most people who voted thought it would be better for decisions to be


By activating something called Article 50.


Think of it is a giant red button - once it's been pressed,


the process to leave the European Union


It's not really a red button, though, but it is very important.


Leaving the EU won't happen overnight.


Loads of things need to be discussed, for example how do


we live and work with all the other countries in Europe once


Two of the biggest issues being talked about are immigration


The first one, immigration, that's when people move


to a different country to live and work.


At the moment, people who are from the EU have the right


The Prime Minister says she wants more control over our borders


to limit the number of people coming to live here from overseas.


That means she's made a big decision on Britain's place


At the moment the UK is part of the single market,


which makes it easier for countries in the European Union


There are rules that everyone in the single market


needs to sign up to - one of those is that people


from the European Union have the right to come and live


Theresa May says the voters made it clear they did not want the EU


to make those rules, so Britain will be leaving


That means the UK has to make decisions about how


we buy and sell things not just with Europe,


A giant alligator, horse-boarding, and puppy players, it must be time


for this week's Strange, Stranger, Strangest...


Check out this massive alligator captured on camera going for a


stroll at a nature reserve in Florida. Experts think the alligator


is over four metres long, about the same size as a car! I would not want


to bump into him! See you later, alligator!


Are you a fan of winter sports, like skiing, snowboarding,


horse-boarding... What? These guys in Russia have tied rope to their


horses and used a snowboard to whizz along in the snow at high speeds.


Better leave this to the professionals, though, it is Snow


Duke. Finally, an American football game


where poppies are the players. Welcome to PuppyBowl. More than 80


pups from animal shelters in America took part in the game, film as an


alternative to the Super Bowl event. There are even rescue rabbits and


guinea pigs cheerleaders. Let's hope it doesn't get a bit to ruff!


Finally, to some raccoons who took an unexpected road trip.


The five babies were born in a truck in Florida in the unites states


and the vehicle was then driven to California.


The driver only noticed his little stowaways four days later.


The animals are now being looked after at a local zoo.


That's all from me, Newsround's back right here just after 2pm.


How many Blue Peter presenters does it take to change a light bulb?
