London aid worker on moving to Syria

Tauqir Sharif from Newham, east London, left London for Syria in 2012.

He now has a young family who live amid the war.

He says "We chose to come to Syria because of the gruesome scenes that we were seeing on our television screens."

His father back home says he is proud of him and would rather he lost his life helping people than anywhere else.

You can watch the whole film on Inside Out London, Monday 20 March at 19:30 on BBC One.
