Hi, I'm Martin and this is Newsround.

0:00:030:00:05

Coming up in the next few minutes...

0:00:050:00:10

I'm in London where a massive decision has been made

0:00:100:00:12

about how the UK will leave the European Union.

0:00:120:00:16

This year's Oscar nominations are revealed.

0:00:160:00:20

And the miraculous birth of this baby bat.

0:00:200:00:30

First up, there's been a really important decision about how the UK

0:00:320:00:36

will leave a club of countries called the European Union.

0:00:360:00:38

Jenny is live in London for us.

0:00:380:00:40

Jenny, what's been going on there?

0:00:400:00:44

Hello, I'm outside the Supreme Court, the most important

0:00:440:00:48

court in the country.

0:00:480:00:50

This morning, 11 judges who work here made a massive decision

0:00:500:00:52

about something you might have heard mentioned a lot recently - Brexit.

0:00:520:00:59

Today this area has been full of TV cameras,

0:00:590:01:02

journalists and lawyers.

0:01:020:01:03

There have big crowds of people here too.

0:01:030:01:05

That's because this is a topic people feel really strongly about.

0:01:050:01:07

So, what's the decision and why is it so important?

0:01:070:01:10

Watch this.

0:01:100:01:11

Six months ago the UK voted to leave the EU.

0:01:110:01:14

How this will happen has been argued over ever since.

0:01:140:01:18

So the Supreme Court - where the most important

0:01:180:01:20

judges in Britain sit - was asked to make a decision.

0:01:200:01:24

About who decides to tell the European Union

0:01:240:01:27

that the UK is leaving.

0:01:270:01:28

So, Britain is going to tell the EU it's leaving by using

0:01:280:01:31

something called Article 50.

0:01:310:01:34

And the Prime Minister Theresa May thought it should be the UK

0:01:340:01:37

government's decision about when to use it.

0:01:370:01:41

But others thought that Parliament - where MPs make and vote on laws -

0:01:410:01:45

should do it instead.

0:01:450:01:46

And the Scottish, Welsh and Northern Irish governments also

0:01:460:01:50

thought they should have their say.

0:01:500:01:53

The Supreme Court has now said that it's just the UK Parliament

0:01:530:01:56

which gets to decide about Article 50.

0:01:560:01:59

So now all MPs get to vote on it - they are expected to decide

0:01:590:02:03

that the UK should start saying goodbye to the European Union.

0:02:030:02:08

Theresa May wants that to happen by the end of March.

0:02:080:02:13

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

0:02:130:02:16

the European Union could mean for the UK and how

0:02:160:02:19

it's going to happen.

0:02:190:02:21

You can also have a look at Ricky's explanation of all the words

0:02:210:02:24

and phrases everyone seems to be using!

0:02:240:02:29

Next up, and it's that time again in the world of film -

0:02:290:02:32

Oscar nominations are out and everyone will be hoping

0:02:320:02:35

to win one of these.

0:02:350:02:37

Kubo and the Two Strings is one of the films up

0:02:370:02:41

for Best Animated Feature as well as Moana and Zootropolis.

0:02:410:02:44

The winners will be revealed at a ceremony in February.

0:02:440:02:49

Meet Alice - she's 15 and has trouble seeing,

0:02:490:02:52

but now her life has been transformed by Billy,

0:02:520:02:54

her very own guide dog.

0:02:540:02:57

She's one of the youngest people in the country to be given one.

0:02:570:03:00

Here's their story.

0:03:000:03:02

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

0:03:020:03:06

in Nottinghamshire - a very furry one.

0:03:060:03:09

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

0:03:090:03:14

to guide blind children or those who have problems with

0:03:140:03:17

therir sight in England.

0:03:170:03:19

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

0:03:200:03:25

people watching me.

0:03:250:03:27

He gives me a bit more freedom.

0:03:270:03:29

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

0:03:290:03:31

as they were thought to be too much of a responsibility

0:03:310:03:35

for a young person.

0:03:350:03:36

But now, the rules have changed.

0:03:360:03:38

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

0:03:380:03:40

responsibility is overwhelming.

0:03:400:03:43

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

0:03:430:03:49

These two have been together since October

0:03:490:03:52

and are getting on just fine.

0:03:520:03:54

Having Billy in school just allows her to gain that

0:03:540:03:56

independence, build resilience, confidence, and go

0:03:560:03:59

through her school life as every other child would.

0:03:590:04:03

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

0:04:030:04:06

in and somewhere for him to walk.

0:04:060:04:08

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

0:04:080:04:11

He's a bit of a poser.

0:04:110:04:14

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

0:04:140:04:19

You might have heard of a smart car but this

0:04:190:04:23

is a pretty smart bus, it drives itself!

0:04:230:04:26

It's just been launched in France.

0:04:260:04:27

It will go between two train stations to start.

0:04:270:04:29

It'll carry six people at a time and uses sensors to figure

0:04:290:04:32

out its surroundings.

0:04:320:04:35

Finally, zoo keepers at San Diego Safari Park

0:04:350:04:38

are celebrating the arrival of this baby fruit bat.

0:04:380:04:41

His mother had problems giving birth, and staff needed to perform

0:04:410:04:44

an emergency operation to save him.

0:04:440:04:47

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

0:04:470:04:52

That's all from me.

0:04:520:04:53
