‘Alan Henning was final straw’ Ex-British soldiers avenging death by fighting IS in Syria


Jamie Read, from Cumbria, made headlines last month after it was revealed he had gone to the war-stricken country to fight alongside the Kurds in the battle against IS militants.

He said he believed IS was “the biggest threat the world faces” and was prompted to act following the release of a video in October which showed taxi driver Mr Henning, 47, being killed by a masked militant known as ‘Jihadi John’.

“My family were nervous and obviously worried about my well-being,” Mr Read, 24, told The Sun.

“But I’m a firm believer that if you want to do something you have to do it and not just talk about it.
