Brit who died fighting ISIS in Syria is given a heroes welcome by the Kurdish community as his body arrives back at Heathrow

The body of a Briton who died after travelling to Syria to fight ISIS terrorists alongside Kurdish forces arrived back at Heathrow Airport to a hero’s welcome.

Dozens of people, including members of the Kurdish community, held roses and framed pictures of Ryan Lock, 20, as his body was repatriated to the UK.

Mr Lock, from Chichester, West Sussex, died in an offensive by anti-ISIS in a bid to retake the northern city of Raqqa, considered to be the terrorist group’s de facto capital.
