MySQL string replace

I have a column containing urls (id, url):

http://www.example.com/articles/updates/43
http://www.example.com/articles/updates/866
http://www.example.com/articles/updates/323
http://www.example.com/articles/updates/seo-url
http://www.example.com/articles/updates/4?something=test

I’d like to change the word “updates” to “news”. Is it possible to do this with a script?
