British jihadis in Syria pledged to fight to the death yesterday as they faced annihilation at the hands of Russian forces.

The extremist fighters are among the final Western militants left in the north-west Syrian province of Idlib.

They are refusing to lay down their weapons as forces allied to Russia and the Syrian regime prepare to launch a final offensive.
