Top five headlines you're waking up to

  1. Two men remain in custody this morning over the Westminster attack as encrypted messaging services such as WhatsApp faced criticism for potentially allowing terrorists to communicate undetected. A new arrest was made as part of the Westminster attack yesterday. A 30-year-old man was arrested at an address in Birmingham on suspicion of preparation of terrorist acts making him the 12th person to be held over the deadly plot.

  2. Rescue efforts are underway in a Japanese ski resort, after an avalanche happened overnight. Many are feared to be dead, including schoolchildren. It is thought that there were more than 50 people in the area at the time.

  3. Dozens have been injured after a suspected gas blast in Wirral. Two people have been seriously injured and 32 others are in hospital after several buildings collapsed in the suspected gas explosion. Emergency services were called to the 'major incident' in Bebington, Wirral, on Saturday night. North West Ambulance Service said two people were in a serious condition in hospital, while 32 others were being treated for minor injuries.

  4. A showdown is expected between the Prime Minister Theresa May and First Minister Nicola Sturgeon. The pair will meet in Scotland today. It comes a day before a crucial vote in Scotland on a second independence referendum, and two days before the government hits the button to trigger Article 50.

  5. Talks on forming a new Northern Ireland government have broken down. It looks as though no agreement between the 5 main parties will be reached before today's 4pm deadline. It will now come down to the Secretary of State for Northern Ireland, James Brokenshire, to make a decision as to what will happen next.

Lost in the Grand Canyon - a story of survival

Texas student Amber VanHecke, 24, survived in the Grand Canyon for five days after her car ran out of gas - surviving on emergency food and water. Fearing the worst, she started filming videos for her friends and family.

Eventually she made the bold decision to abandon shelter and walk 11 miles for phone signal. She left notes at the car explaining that she was walking east for help in case anyone came across it and wanted to find her.

She was eventually rescued by an air ambulance pilot as she walked back to her car where she had left notes for anyone that might come across it.

Amber joined us live from Dallas this morning. Still visibly shaken from the experience, she bravely told Kate and Ben her story, below.

Piers Morgan's mouthiest moments

It feels a bit quiet today, what with Piers Morgan officially gagged for Comic Relief.

That means no talking, no writing articles and certainly no tweeting.

It feels strange having an hour pass without a new opinion of Piers' bestowed upon us... so we decided to take a look back at some times when he REALLY made sure his voice was heard.

When he challenged Mason Noise's ego...

Do you think the ego’s writing cheques the body’s maybe not quite able to cash?

– Piers Morgan asks the questions others might be thinking

X Factor contestant Mason Noise made headlines with his fiery behaviour towards judges when he was evicted - but it was nothing compared to what he faced in Piers when he went on Good Morning Britain the next day!

When he took on a trophy hunting schoolgirl...

How would you feel if I came to your house one day and I hunted down your pet cat and I killed it and then posted pictures of me celebrating the slaughter of your pet cat?

– Piers Morgan poses a rather difficult question

Emotional Zeebrugge disaster survivors reunited live on the show

Two survivors from the Zeebrugge ferry disaster were reunited today on Good Morning Britain after 30 years.

Gillian Lashbrooke joined us on the anniversary of the ferry disaster earlier this month and spoke about a woman and young girl who she had been in the water after the ferry capsized.

Gillian, aged 16 at the time, was rescued by emergency services who she told about the woman and girl, but as she didn’t know their names and never knew what happened to them.

But a GMB viewer watching the programme on 6 March thought the young girl sounded like a member of their family, called Lisa Ladybird, and got in touch with the programme.

And today Lisa and Gillian were reunited live on the programme.

UKIP leader Paul Nuttall defends calling radical Islam a cancer in our society

Are we going to pretend that radical Islam is not a cancer? Are we going to pretend it’s not a problem? Because it is.

– Paul Nuttall - UKIP leader

This morning we were joined by UKIP leader Paul Nuttall and parliamentary adviser on communities Hayyan Bhabha, to discuss Nuttall's controversial comments on extremism.

The MEP criticised people who claim incidents such as the Westminster attack have nothing to do with Islam. He was quoted as saying: "Muslim communities must do far more to cut this cancer out of their midst. We need a more rigorous and assertive official approach on this."
