Britain's online war with terrorism

Shocking statistics have shown there are more clicks on Jihadists 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 content 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.

  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.
