London mother: 'My jihad son came back from Syria'

Amid growing concern in Muslim communities about the radicalisation of young men and women, one mother has described to BBC Inside Out London how she persuaded her son to return from fighting in Syria.

He had joined a group linked to Islamic State (IS) there, but she travelled to neighbouring Turkey to bring him home.

Caroline Wyatt reports.

Inside Out is broadcast on BBC One in London on Monday, 20 October at 19:30 BST and nationwide on the iPlayer for 30 days thereafter.
