Good morning, I'm Ayshah with all the top stories this Tuesday.

0:00:040:00:06

Keep watching for all of this.

0:00:060:00:08

Big news about Brexit.

0:00:080:00:10

Find out why this dog is going to school...

0:00:100:00:12

And the miraculous birth of this baby bat.

0:00:120:00:18

It's been over half a year since the people in the UK voted

0:00:250:00:29

in an historic referendum to leave a club of countries called

0:00:290:00:31

the European Union.

0:00:310:00:33

However, we haven't officially told the European Union that

0:00:330:00:35

we're going to leave.

0:00:350:00:37

This can only be done by triggering a law called Article 50.

0:00:370:00:40

So why hasn't it been done yet?

0:00:400:00:42

Here's our political guru, Chris Mason.

0:00:420:00:47

This is all about a decision being made here by the UK's Supreme Court.

0:00:470:00:51

It is the most important court in the land.

0:00:510:00:54

The 11 judges have to decide who should be in charge

0:00:540:00:58

of telling the European Union that we are leaving.

0:00:580:01:01

Officially, the process is called "triggering Article 50".

0:01:010:01:06

Once that has happened, the UK has got two years

0:01:060:01:10

to get it all arranged.

0:01:100:01:12

Some people think the decision should be made by those

0:01:120:01:14

who make our laws, MPs, in Parliament.

0:01:140:01:18

And the Scottish Parliament, the Welsh assembly and people

0:01:180:01:21

in Northern Ireland want their views to be heard too.

0:01:210:01:27

But the Prime Minister, Theresa May, thinks the Government shouldn't have

0:01:270:01:29

to ask permission to say goodbye.

0:01:290:01:32

We'll find out later this morning what they decide.

0:01:320:01:35

But whatever they say, it's the next big step

0:01:350:01:37

in what is a really important time for the future of this country.

0:01:370:01:45

And don't forget, there's loads more info about what leaving

0:01:460:01:48

the European Union could mean for the UK and how

0:01:480:01:50

it's going to happen.

0:01:500:01:51

You can also check out Ricky's explanation of all the words

0:01:510:01:54

and phrases everyone seems to be using!

0:01:540:01:59

To tennis and Britain women's number one Johanna Konta says she's done

0:02:020:02:05

everything she can to be ready for her first ever meeting

0:02:050:02:07

with 22-time Grand Slam winner Serena Williams

0:02:070:02:09

at the Australian Open quarter finals on Wednesday.

0:02:090:02:12

Konta has won 18 sets in a row and she says says

0:02:120:02:15

she's pretty excited.

0:02:150:02:20

She is one of the, I mean if not THE best player for us

0:02:200:02:25

to ever have in the game, so I think to play against someone

0:02:250:02:28

like that, who you also grew up watching, I think is another great

0:02:280:02:31

opportunity for me to take a really mega load of experience from.

0:02:310:02:38

Next up - this is Alice, she's 15 and has trouble seeing

0:02:390:02:42

but now her life has been transformed by Billy,

0:02:420:02:47

her very own guide dog.

0:02:470:02:49

Alice is one of the youngest people in the country

0:02:490:02:51

to be given a guide dog.

0:02:510:02:54

The pair go everywhere together, including school.

0:02:540:02:59

It's the new term and there's a new face at this high

0:02:590:03:02

school in Nottinghamshire.

0:03:020:03:04

A very furry one.

0:03:040:03:05

Billy the Labrador is just one of around 50 expert pets helping

0:03:050:03:08

to guide blind children or those who have problems with

0:03:080:03:11

therir sight in England.

0:03:110:03:17

I think it's good because I don't have to constantly have

0:03:170:03:21

people watching me. He gives me a bit more freedom.

0:03:210:03:24

In the past, guide dogs weren't paired with children

0:03:240:03:27

as they were thought to be too much of a responsibility

0:03:270:03:30

for a young person. But now, the rules have changed.

0:03:300:03:35

The amount of work you have to do with him and the

0:03:350:03:37

responsibility is overwhelming.

0:03:370:03:39

But if you put the work in, you get the results out of it.

0:03:390:03:44

These two have been together since October

0:03:440:03:46

and are getting on just fine.

0:03:460:03:49

Having Billy in school just allows her to gain that

0:03:490:03:51

independence, build resilience, confidence, and go

0:03:510:03:53

through her school life as every other child would.

0:03:530:03:58

The school had to create a quiet area for Billy to rest

0:03:580:04:01

in and somewhere for him to walk.

0:04:010:04:03

And he's been a big hit with the rest of the pupils too.

0:04:030:04:07

He's a bit of a poser.

0:04:070:04:09

They did say the novelty will wear off but everybody still loves him.

0:04:090:04:15

Zoo keepers at San Diego Safari Park are celebrating the miraculous

0:04:160:04:18

arrival of this baby fruit bat...

0:04:180:04:22

His mother had problems giving birth and staff needed to perform

0:04:220:04:24

an emergency operation to save him.

0:04:240:04:26

The surgery had never been done on a fruit bat before.

0:04:260:04:30

Thankfully, 12-day-old Rodrigues is now doing really well,

0:04:300:04:31

he's being hand-fed by staff at the zoo.

0:04:310:04:38

I have to show you this before I go, it's a bus that drives itself!

0:04:380:04:42

It's just been launched in France.

0:04:420:04:45

It will go between two train stations to start.

0:04:450:04:47

It can carry ten people at a time and uses sensors to figure

0:04:470:04:50

out its surroundings.

0:04:500:04:51
