Hi, I'm Ayshah with all the top stories this Sunday.

:00:00.:00:07.

Princes William and Harry announce plans for a statue of their mum.

:00:08.:00:13.

And find out why granny orcas are really important.

:00:14.:00:26.

Prince William and Prince Harry have announced plans to create

:00:27.:00:30.

a statue of their mum, Diana Princess of Wales,

:00:31.:00:32.

on the 20th anniversary of her death.

:00:33.:00:35.

The statue will be made for Kensignton Palace,

:00:36.:00:37.

The princes say they hope the statue will recognise Diana's positive

:00:38.:00:45.

impact in the UK and around the world, because they say

:00:46.:00:48.

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

:00:49.:00:53.

but now her life has been transformed by Billy,

:00:54.:00:55.

Alice is one of the youngest people in the country

:00:56.:00:59.

The pair go everywhere together including school.

:01:00.:01:02.

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

:01:03.:01:10.

Billy the labrador is just one of 50 expert pups helping to guide blind

:01:11.:01:27.

children or those who have problems with their sight in England.

:01:28.:01:29.

I think it is good because I do not have to

:01:30.:01:34.

constantly have to have people watching me.

:01:35.:01:37.

In the past, guide dogs were not paired with children.

:01:38.:01:50.

The amount of work you have to do with him and

:01:51.:01:57.

If you put the work in, you get good results at the end of it.

:01:58.:02:01.

These two have been together since October and

:02:02.:02:03.

Having Billy in school allows her to gain independence, build resilience,

:02:04.:02:08.

confidence and go through her school life as any other child would.

:02:09.:02:14.

The school have had to create a quiet area

:02:15.:02:17.

for Billy to rest in and somewhere for him to walk.

:02:18.:02:19.

He has been a big hit with the rest of the pupils,

:02:20.:02:22.

The novelty will wear off but everybody still loves him.

:02:23.:02:26.

There have been big protests in America about Donald Trump's

:02:27.:02:28.

controversial changes to who is allowed into America.

:02:29.:02:31.

Yesterday, President Trump said people from seven mostly Muslim

:02:32.:02:33.

countries would not be allowed into the US for at

:02:34.:02:35.

Mr Trump said the move is to take back control over America's borders

:02:36.:02:40.

and keep people safe but lots of people

:02:41.:02:42.

And UK Prime minister Theresa May says she does not agree

:02:43.:02:50.

Mrs May was criticised for not speaking out against it yesterday

:02:51.:02:57.

but has now said although America should be free to make its own rules

:02:58.:03:01.

There are also worries about how it could affect British people

:03:02.:03:09.

who were born in those seven countries.

:03:10.:03:10.

If you want to find out more, go online.

:03:11.:03:14.

Footie now, and there were plenty of shocks in the fourth

:03:15.:03:18.

round of the FA Cup with Wolves claiming the biggest victory,

:03:19.:03:20.

knocking Liverpool out of the tournament 2-1.

:03:21.:03:22.

Meanwhile, non-League Lincoln reached the fifth

:03:23.:03:23.

in 115 years, thanks to a win against leaders Brighton.

:03:24.:03:28.

And over at White Heart Lane this stoppage-time goal helped Spurs beat

:03:29.:03:31.

Orcas, or killer whales, have fascinated scientists

:03:32.:03:42.

for a long time, and experts in the US say that they could help

:03:43.:03:45.

The BBC's Victoria Gill has been finding out how.

:03:46.:03:50.

They are the magnificent mammals of the sea known

:03:51.:04:06.

as their intelligence and close family bonds.

:04:07.:04:07.

Researchers here in the USA have been studying

:04:08.:04:09.

the lives of orcas for the past 40 years and what they found could help

:04:10.:04:13.

to explain something that orcas and humans have in common.

:04:14.:04:17.

Just like humans, orcas stop having babies

:04:18.:04:18.

It makes us different because nearly all other animals carry on

:04:19.:04:23.

Scientists have long wondered why we evolve like this and by recording

:04:24.:04:37.

the births and deaths of every orca family here,

:04:38.:04:40.

the researchers found that there is

:04:41.:04:43.

a very important role of female orcas after they stop having babies,

:04:44.:04:46.

Leading the pod and helping the family to

:04:47.:04:51.

survive makes granny orcas very important.

:04:52.:04:53.

It is tough for babies surviving and feeding themselves in

:04:54.:04:55.

the wild and there is lots of competition within families.

:04:56.:05:06.

This study shows that once grandma orcas stop having the babies

:05:07.:05:08.

grandmothers can put their time and effort

:05:09.:05:15.

into helping the rest of the

:05:16.:05:17.

This could help explain why humans still

:05:18.:05:23.

keep living long after having babies.

:05:24.:05:25.

It backs up what lot of you might already think, grannies

:05:26.:05:28.

Finally, the underwater pool that NASA trains astronauts in,

:05:29.:05:31.

is now going to be open for businesses to use.

:05:32.:05:34.

It's a super-sized swimming pool up to four storeys deep.

:05:35.:05:36.

With fewer astronauts needing to use it for training, NASA say

:05:37.:05:39.

that the pool can be rented out to other people, including pilots

:05:40.:05:42.

Just enough time to tell you what's good over on the website.

:05:43.:05:46.

You can watch the strangest news stories, play the quiz of the week

:05:47.:05:50.

and find out why this massive polar beer gets a health check. That is

:05:51.:05:59.

all from me. We are back just before two o'clock. See you then, guys.
