Mohammed Emwazi 'hardworking', says former head teacher

Islamist militant Mohammed Emwazi was never suspected of being radicalised at school, his former head teacher has told the BBC in an exclusive interview.

Jo Shuter was head of Quintin Kynaston Academy in north-west London until 2013.

Emwazi has been named as the man known as "Jihadi John" in several IS hostage videos.

Jo Shuter left her post at the school and was subsequently banned from teaching as a result of expenses abuses.

She has been given permission to appeal against that ban.

She spoke to Lucy Manning about Mohammed Emwazi.
