Families appeal to 'Syria' girls to return home

Relatives of three missing London girls say there were no signs they were planning to go to Syria, in emotional interviews appealing for their return.

It is feared Shamima Begum, Amira Abase, both 15, and Kadiza Sultana, 16, plan to join Islamic State.

The three girls flew from Gatwick to Turkey on Tuesday after telling their parents they were going out for the day - but it is not clear whether they have crossed into Syria.

Daniel Sandford reports.
