Two former British soldiers who flew to Syria to fight Islamic State fanatics were held at Heathrow as terror suspects after flying home for Christmas.
Jamie Read, 24, and James Hughes, 26, left to help Kurdish forces battling the extremists following the beheading of British aid worker Alan Henning.

They were not paid and only received food, equipment and shelter.

When they landed they were taken to separate rooms and questioned for six hours.
