The deputy head boy of a prestigious Church of England school is feared to have fled the country to join Islamic State.

Zubair Nur, 19, is suspected of attempting to travel to Syria to join the terrorist group after he began posting messages praising hate preachers and extremist leaders.

The formerly ‘happy-go-lucky’ student had also started dressing in traditional Muslim attire.

Nur’s family had raised the alarm after hearing that he had gone missing from university.
