Syria girls families 'should have been shown police letters'

A solicitor representing the families of the three schoolgirls missing in Syria said police "effectively called the families out to be liars".

Tasnime Akunjee said police should have informed the families about the letters which were sent directly to the schoolgirls and contained information about possible radicalisation.

If they had, he said, it may have been possible for the family to address the issue before the girls left the country.
