Top five headlines you're going home to

  1. The Democratic Unionist Party has signed a deal at Downing Street to support a minority Conservative government after several weeks of post-election negotiations. DUP leader Arlene Foster said she was "delighted" at an arrangement that she said secures £1.5bn in new spending power in return for support in the House of Commons.

  2. Housing Minister Alok Sharma has refused to confirm whether the cladding used on the Grenfell Tower was illegal or banned, despite being asked at least five times on this morning's Good Morning Britain. Meanwhile, the US firm that supplied the cladding thought to have been used on the tower has announced it has ended global sales for use in high-rise blocks.

  3. Part of Donald Trump's controversial travel ban has been given the go-ahead before a final decision is made on it later this year. The court overturned lower court orders blocking the ban - which imposes a 90-day suspension on travellers from six mostly-Muslim countries - but left one class of applicant protected.

  4. A 14-year-old girl who fell out an amusement park ride in New York was saved after rescuers caught her. The teenager was left dangling about 25ft off the ground as her eight-year-old brother cried hysterically saying he couldn't hold on to her. A man injured his back catching her, with the tense moment caught on film.

  5. A dad who paid an emotional visit to the young man whose life was saved when he was given his dead daughter's heart has told Good Morning Britain that he feels she is "still alive". Bill Connor told Piers and Susanna: "I was there spending Father's Day with my daughter" and described it as "the second best thing" to her still being alive.

Was the cladding used on Grenfell Tower illegal?

The Government revealed that 60 high-rise buildings in 25 local authorities across the country have failed the fire cladding safety tests after the Grenfell Tower disaster.

The death toll currently stands at 79, although many people in the local community suspect the number is a lot higher.

This morning we were joined by the Housing Minister Alok Sharma, who was asked about the Grenfell Tower death toll, the failed safety tests and the use of cladding in the building.

Bill met the recipient of the life-saving donation, Loumonth Jack Jr, on Fathers Day and described the moment he rested his head against Loumonth's chest to hear his daughter Abbey Connor's heart beating again.
