A former British soldier who travelled to Syria to fight against Isis faces up to 16 years in prison after being charged with terror offences in Turkey.

Joe Robinson, 24, was arrested on the beach while on holiday with his fiancée and her mother in the coastal resort of Didim last month.

Turkish media reported that security forces had found photos of Mr Robinson on social media showing him wearing military fatigues alongside members of the Kurdish People’s Protection Units (YPG) in Syria.
