The number of women and girls travelling from the UK to Syria to join ISIS has risen – after figures revealed that 56 fled to the war-torn country last year.

Previous figures released in July showed that 43 females were thought to have fled from the UK to Syria in the previous 12 months.

But latest figures have now revealed that some 56 girls and women were… Read the full story
