Court wants Muslim teenager at risk of becoming a jihadi bride in Syria to watch more TV to ‘learn about the wider world – including football and boys’

A Muslim teenager feared to be in danger of being radicalised and travelling to Syria to become a Jihadi bride should be watching more television, a family court judge has been told.

The teenager, now 17, is one of a number of Muslim girls from east London who found have themselves at the centre of family court litigation after police and social services staff raised concerns about them being exposed to Islamic State ideology.

Mr Justice Hayden is analysing her case at hearings in the Family Division of the High Court and is expected to make decisions relating to how she can be protected later this year.
