The top stories this Sunday morning

The Democratic Unionist Party (DUP) says no deal has yet been reached between them and the Conservatives to keep British Prime Minister Theresa May in power.

Yesterday Downing Street released a statement saying an "outline agreement has been reached" - but sources say that this was released in error.

The DUP says discussion will continue next week.


French voters return to the polls today for parliamentary elections - a month after electing Emmanuel Macron as president.

Mr Macron will be hoping his centrist candidates will pick up the majority of the 577 seats.

Latest opinion polls suggest the party could end up with a landslide.


British Police say the use of fake explosive belts, as worn by the London Bridge attackers, is a 'new tactic'.

They have released images of the belts, which were strapped with plastic bottles wrapped in silver tape.

Meanwhile an officer has revealed how he hid 200 people in a pub basement during the attack.


Police in Amsterdam say there is no terror connection to an incident in which a car hit pedestrians outside the city's main railway station last night.

Eight people were injured and the driver of the car has been arrested.

The incident received immediate widespread attention after several extremist attacks in Europe over the past year involving vehicles.


Secondary school teachers who are members of the ASTI have suspended long-running industrial action.

It means they can now join other teacher unions in considering the new public service pay deal, dubbed 'Lansdowne Road 2'.

The decision was reached by the executive yesterday, paving the way for around 17,000 members to receive a number of payments which had been frozen by the Government in response to their opposition to the first Lansdowne Road Agreement.
