Morning, all.

0:00:040:00:05

Ricky here with your top stories

this freezing Tuesday.

0:00:050:00:08

On the way.

0:00:080:00:10

Who's got snow and who hasn't?

0:00:100:00:14

The ninja skater

with a secret talent.

0:00:140:00:17

And just what is this unusual animal

caught on camera in the UK?

0:00:170:00:25

First up, did you wake up

to snow this morning?

0:00:320:00:35

Well, lots of you across the UK did,

although maybe not quite so much

0:00:350:00:38

as weather forecasts predicted.

0:00:380:00:40

Up to eight centimetres of the white

stuff fell in Northumberland.

0:00:400:00:43

Now that's got to be

enough for a snowman.

0:00:430:00:46

There was about a centimetre

of the white stuff in parts

0:00:460:00:49

of south east England.

0:00:490:00:50

Temperatures were pretty cold too.

0:00:500:00:52

In the Highlands it was as low

as minus 8.5 degrees.

0:00:520:00:57

In Northern Ireland,

south west England and East Anglia

0:00:570:00:59

it dropped to minus six!

0:00:590:01:02

Some schools are shut

so check before you set off.

0:01:020:01:06

And we want your snow videos.

0:01:060:01:08

Head to Newsround online to find out

how to send them on your phones.

0:01:080:01:13

Now the Winter Olympics may have

just finished but we only

0:01:130:01:16

have to wait 36 days

until the Commonwealth

0:01:160:01:18

Games in Australia.

0:01:180:01:20

Amongst the big names competing

on the Gold Coast for Team England,

0:01:200:01:23

are the Brownlee Brothers.

0:01:230:01:25

Both hoping for a medal

in the Triathlon.

0:01:250:01:28

Well, they came into Newsround HQ

for a chat and we decided to test

0:01:280:01:31

their Commonwealth knowledge.

0:01:310:01:34

Hi, Newsround.

0:01:350:01:36

I'm Alistair Brownlee.

0:01:360:01:37

And I'm Jonny Brownlee.

0:01:370:01:38

And we compete in triathlon.

0:01:380:01:41

I think it's earlier.

0:01:470:01:48

I think it's 1930.

0:01:480:01:49

We'll go for 1930.

0:01:490:01:56

I'd go for 63 for some reason.

0:01:580:02:01

I don't know.

0:02:010:02:04

OK, we'll go for 63.

0:02:040:02:06

Should've gone to the middle.

0:02:060:02:07

Should've listened to me.

0:02:070:02:11

Sailing.

0:02:110:02:12

Is shooting in?

0:02:120:02:13

No, it's not in Birmingham.

0:02:130:02:15

It's just been taken

out of Birmingham.

0:02:150:02:17

So sailing is not in?

0:02:170:02:19

Yeah, sailing.

0:02:190:02:20

Sailing.

0:02:200:02:23

I'm fairly confident

it's not Canada.

0:02:270:02:29

It's Australia or England.

0:02:290:02:31

And I reckon it's probably...

0:02:310:02:34

Australia cos swimming.

0:02:340:02:36

Yeah, but England normally come

top of the medal field.

0:02:360:02:38

Didn't they come top

of the medal field last time?

0:02:380:02:42

We have to go for the home crowd.

0:02:420:02:44

All right, we'll go

for England, yeah.

0:02:440:02:47

No, surely the Queen opens

the Commonwealth Games?

0:02:540:02:58

I'm sure Chris Hoy was there

at the ceremony but doesn't

0:02:580:03:00

the Queen say, "I declare these

Games open?"

0:03:000:03:03

I reckon she does.

0:03:030:03:05

The Queen.

0:03:050:03:07

That would have been embarrassing

to get that one wrong.

0:03:070:03:13

Yeah, we'll go for platform diving.

0:03:130:03:18

We went to watch that

in Glasgow, as well.

0:03:180:03:20

Yeah.

0:03:200:03:23

I don't think South Africa.

0:03:230:03:28

Well, South Africa weren't allowed

to be in any international sport.

0:03:280:03:30

It could have been

pre-apartheid, couldn't it?

0:03:300:03:34

Go South Africa.

0:03:340:03:38

It can't have been in Jamaica.

0:03:380:03:39

It hasn't been in Jamaica.

0:03:390:03:41

Really?

0:03:410:03:46

It's England.

0:03:460:03:49

It's Birmingham, isn't it?

0:03:490:03:50

It was supposed to be South Africa.

0:03:500:03:52

It just got moved.

0:03:520:03:59

Room for improvement there.

0:04:000:04:01

Room for improvement there.

0:04:010:04:02

Next, let's meet one nine year

old skateboarder who's come up

0:04:020:04:05

with a secret weapon to get

to the top in her sport.

0:04:050:04:08

There is lots of girls skateboarding

but there's just more boys.

0:04:110:04:14

I think when girls go to skate park

there's loads of boys there,

0:04:140:04:18

they might get intimidated

but you should not think that.

0:04:180:04:22

They will think you're really

cool cos you're starting

0:04:220:04:24

and that's a good thing.

0:04:240:04:25

Well said.

0:04:250:04:26

This supercool skater is Lola

and she's the only girl competing in

0:04:260:04:30

a local skateboarding competition.

0:04:300:04:32

To make sure she can pull off

best flicks and tricks,

0:04:320:04:35

Lola has a single weapon.

0:04:350:04:37

She's also a ballet dancer.

0:04:370:04:42

I don't know any skateboarders that

do ballet except for me.

0:04:420:04:46

It gets my legs strong

so I can pump really hard.

0:04:460:04:49

I've got a six-pack.

0:04:490:04:51

I like actually do.

0:04:510:04:56

Here she is competing in front

of the judges and it looks

0:04:560:04:59

like the pirouettes and pointy toes

are certainly helping.

0:04:590:05:03

It's results time.

0:05:030:05:05

Lola came in fourth beating

most of her rivals.

0:05:050:05:08

I think my ballet helps

because they said I looked

0:05:080:05:11

graceful and stylish.

0:05:110:05:13

So what would this twinkle-toed

daredevil like to see in future?

0:05:130:05:16

I wish they would be more girls

so we could join a gang.

0:05:160:05:24

I think girls should start doing it.

0:05:280:05:36

Well done, Lola. She's amazing,

isn't she?

0:05:390:05:42

Take a look at this rare white

stoat caught on camera

0:05:420:05:45

in a garden in North Yorkshire.

0:05:450:05:46

The tiny mammals are normally

a rusty brown colour but they can

0:05:460:05:49

shed their coats and replace them

with a special white

0:05:490:05:52

one when temperatures

are lower than average.

0:05:520:05:54

Perfect for this week

on the North Yorkshire Moors.

0:05:540:05:56

Thanks for watching.

0:05:560:05:57

We're back at 4.20pm this afternoon.

0:05:570:05:58

Wrap up warm.

0:05:580:05:59

Bye!
