Top five headlines you’re waking up to

  1. A powerful earthquake has hit central Mexico on Tuesday lunchtime (local time) killing at least 139 people. It is the worst earthquake to hit the country since 1985 - and took place on the anniversary of that quake which killed thousands. It also comes less than 2 weeks after another earthquake killed 90 in the south of the country.

  2. The Caribbean and the British Virgin Islands are bracing themselves for more misery as hurricane Maria strengthens again to a category 5 with winds of up to 160mph. St Croix and Puerto Rico are likely to be worst hit, with storm surges and hurricane force winds putting the already storm battered British Virgin Islands at risk. Benito Wheatley, the British Virgin Islands UK and EU representative, said: 'We are preparing for the worst- that is what we have to do.' Hurricane Maria devastated the Caribbean island of Dominica on Monday, with the nation's prime minister saying his country has lost all that 'money can buy and replace.'

  3. A third man has been arrested in connection with the terror attack on a tube train at Parsons Green. The 25-year-old man was arrested in Newport, Wales.

  4. Internet companies are being given one month to show they are taking serious action to limit the availability of terrorist propaganda online. At a special meeting in New York on Wednesday, world leaders including Theresa May will challenge the companies to develop technological fixes to take down terrorist material within one to two hours.

  5. Theresa May and Boris Johnson will meet face to face today as the Prime Minister joins her Foreign Secretary at the United Nations. This comes after a their public argument over Brexit.

Donald Trump

  • US President Donald Trump has threatened to "totally destroy" North Korea if it does not abandon its drive toward nuclear weapons. In his debut speech to the UN general assembly, Mr Trump said, "it is far past time for the nations of the world to confront" Kim Jong Un, adding that Mr Kim's "reckless pursuit of nuclear weapons" poses a threat to "the entire world with an unthinkable loss of human life". He added ''Rocket man is on a suicide mission for himself and his regime.''
  • Theresa May is expecting Boris Johnson to remain in her Cabinet as Foreign Secretary, Downing Street has said. The comment came after Mr Johnson dismissed reports that he might be on the verge of quitting and denied the Cabinet is split over Brexit, insisting, "We are a nest of singing birds.''
  • Meanwhile, the Prime Minister has called for a "revitalised" Commonwealth, as she prepared to meet leaders of many of the 52 member states in New York. The UK is to host the largest meeting of heads of Commonwealth governments Britain has ever seen in April next year, taking place in landmark venues including Buckingham Palace, St James's Palace and Windsor Castle.
  • Frustrated travellers resorted to playing football, frisbee and touch rugby on the M1 after police closed the motorway for more than six hours because of a ''suspicious object''. Thousands sat in gridlock from around 8am, when police closed the three-lane motorway between junctions 14 and 15 at Milton Keynes.
  • Would you prefer money or sleep? A study has found that a healthy amount of sleep every night has a far higher impact on well-being than a 50% increase in disposable income.

– Chair of the Transport Select Committee Lilian Greenwood MP

Hundreds of thousands of peoples' travel plans have been thrown into chaos after Ryanair cancelled many flights due to a pilot shortage.

Britain's online war with terrorism

Shocking statistics reveal there are more clicks on Jihadist produced content in Britain than any other country in Europe.

Online giants around the world are being urged to take immediate action - but should politicians be doing more to combat the growing problem?

A conservative estimate reveals that ISIS produce 100 pieces of new online propaganda in an average week.

Are you afraid of spiders?

Do you have some unwelcome visitors in your home at the moment? It's estimated that there are currently between 30 and 100 spiders living in cracks and corners of your house. There are 750 million spiders in the UK, but most of the time they live outside. September is peak Spider season, and spiders come inside for warmth, and the larger male spiders to find a mate.

This is fine if you don't mind them, but for half of women and a third of men with a fear of spiders this is a big problem.

Here at Good Morning Britain we are helping the nation overcome its spider phobia.

​We have enlisted the help of life coach and phobia busting expert Pete Cohen and spider expert Britain to help you overcome your phobia.

Top five headlines you’re waking up to

  1. Theresa May insists she's driving Brexit from the front and everyone is “going to the same destination”, after reports Boris Johnson said he was a "back-seat driver". When asked about Boris’ claims on £350 million being given to the NHS after Britain leave the EU, May responded: "the amount we pay into the European Union changes year by year."

  2. Hurricane Maria has intensified to a "potentially catastrophic" category five storm after the National Hurricane Centre recorded wind speeds in excess of 160mph. Warnings have been issued to the Virgin Islands and Montserrat after Maria made landfall with the island of Dominica on Monday.

  3. Ryanair have published the full list of their cancelled flights over the next six weeks between September 21st and October 28th.

Have you been affected by the flight cancellations? If so, get in touch by emailing us at

  4. Uber have apologised for their “totally inappropriate” Wife Appreciation Day promotional message sent to their customers in India. The message urged men to let their wives “take a day off from the kitchen” and order food through their Uber Eats service instead. Users took to social media to heavily criticise the car transportation company after people felt they were insinuating that a wife’s place is in the kitchen.

  5. The Governor of the Bank of England has warned that Brexit is likely to spell for a weaker economy as well as higher inflation and interest rates. However, Mark Carney's latest attack on Brexit wasn't all doom and gloom, as he did suggest that leaving the EU could see wages increase.
