Hi there, you're watching Newsround live on CBBC with me Ayshah,

0:00:000:00:03

here's what's going on this Tuesday morning.

0:00:030:00:08

Big news about Brexit...

0:00:080:00:09

The bus that drives itself...

0:00:090:00:11

And the miraculous birth of this baby bat.

0:00:110:00:16

First up, there's a really important decision expected later about how

0:00:240:00:27

the UK will leave a club of countries called

0:00:270:00:29

the European Union.

0:00:290:00:30

Here's our political guru Chris Mason to explain.

0:00:300:00:36

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

0:00:360:00:39

It is the most important court in the land.

0:00:390:00:48

11 judges have to decide who should be in charge

0:00:480:00:51

of telling the European Union that we are leaving.

0:00:510:00:52

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

0:00:520:00:56

Once that has happened, the UK has got two years

0:00:560:00:59

to get it all arranged.

0:00:590:01:00

Some people think the decision should be made by those

0:01:000:01:03

who make our laws, MPs, in Parliament.

0:01:030:01:07

And the Scottish Parliament, the Welsh assembly and people

0:01:070:01:09

in Northern Ireland want their views to be heard too.

0:01:090:01:16

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

0:01:160:01:19

to ask permission to say goodbye.

0:01:190:01:23

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

0:01:230:01:25

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

0:01:250:01:27

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

0:01:270:01:34

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

0:01:360:01:38

the European Union could mean for the UK and how

0:01:380:01:41

it's going to happen.

0:01:410:01:42

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

0:01:420:01:44

and phrases everyone seems to be using!

0:01:440:01:50

Football now and an 18-year-old referee is calling for a national

0:01:510:01:54

strike on the first weekend of March because he claims refs aren't

0:01:540:01:57

getting enough support. Ryan Hampsen doesn't believe that

0:01:570:01:58

referees in the amateur leagues are respected enough.

0:01:580:02:00

He's been attacked and players often shout at him and use bad language.

0:02:000:02:06

Although not everyone agrees with the planned strike,

0:02:060:02:08

Ryan thinks it's the only way to tackle the problem and says

0:02:080:02:11

so far he's had the support of more than 800 referees.

0:02:110:02:20

We loved her at the London and Rio Olympic Games but boxing

0:02:200:02:23

superstar Nicola Adams has said she won't be going to the next

0:02:230:02:26

Olympics and will now turn professional.

0:02:260:02:29

That means she'll be earning money by having big fights on TV

0:02:290:02:32

rather than getting funding from Team GB as an Olympic athlete.

0:02:320:02:36

She said the time was right.

0:02:360:02:39

I wanted to leave the amateur game a World Champion

0:02:390:02:44

as well as a double Olympic champion.

0:02:440:02:46

So, I decided to stay to fulfil my goals.

0:02:460:02:51

I wanted to be a double Olympic champion, World Champion and leave

0:02:510:02:54

ranked number one as well.

0:02:540:03:00

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

0:03:000:03:03

everything she can to be ready for her first ever meeting

0:03:030:03:05

with 22-time Grand Slam winner Serena Williams

0:03:050:03:07

at the Australian Open quarter finals on Wednesday.

0:03:070:03:09

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

0:03:090:03:12

she's pretty excited to play Serena.

0:03:120:03:17

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

0:03:170:03:22

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

0:03:220:03:26

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

0:03:260:03:30

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

0:03:300:03:36

Meet Alice, she's 15 and has trouble seeing

0:03:360:03:38

but now her life has been transformed by Billy,

0:03:380:03:40

her very own guide dog.

0:03:400:03:42

She's one of the youngest people in the country

0:03:420:03:44

to be given one. Here's her story.

0:03:440:03:50

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

0:03:500:03:53

school in Nottinghamshire - a very furry one.

0:03:530:03:56

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

0:03:560:04:01

to guide blind children or those who have problems with

0:04:010:04:03

therir sight in England.

0:04:030:04:08

their sight in England.

0:04:080:04:10

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

0:04:100:04:13

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

0:04:130:04:17

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

0:04:170:04:19

as they were thought to be too much of a responsibility

0:04:190:04:22

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

0:04:220:04:25

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

0:04:250:04:28

responsibility is overwhelming.

0:04:280:04:32

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

0:04:320:04:38

These two have been together since October

0:04:380:04:39

and are getting on just fine.

0:04:390:04:41

Having Billy in school just allows her to gain that

0:04:410:04:44

independence, build resilience, confidence, and go

0:04:440:04:45

through her school life as every other child would.

0:04:450:04:50

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

0:04:500:04:53

in and somewhere for him to walk.

0:04:530:04:55

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

0:04:550:04:58

He's a bit of a poser.

0:04:580:04:59

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

0:04:590:05:07

You might have heard of a smart car -

0:05:080:05:10

but this is a pretty smart bus, it drives itself!

0:05:100:05:15

It's just been launched in France.

0:05:150:05:16

It will go between two train stations to start.

0:05:160:05:19

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

0:05:190:05:22

out its surroundings.

0:05:220:05:25

Zoo keepers at San Diego Safari Park are celebrating the miraculous

0:05:250:05:27

arrival of this baby fruit bat...

0:05:270:05:29

His mother had problems giving birth and staff needed to perform

0:05:290:05:31

an emergency operation to save him.

0:05:310:05:34

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

0:05:340:05:36

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

0:05:360:05:38

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

0:05:380:05:46

That's all from me, Newsround's back with all the latest on Brexit,

0:05:460:05:49

live from London, at 4:20pm. Don't miss it.

0:05:490:05:54
