More than 150 British children at risk of radicalisation are dealt with in family courts amid a wave of returning ISIS jihadi brides

Officials have been forced to take action in more than 150 cases where children were in danger of being radicalised, figures show.

The family courts – which have powers to take youngsters into care – have seen a wave of cases driven by returning jihadi mothers, a report revealed.

The ground-breaking study by the Henry Jackson Society (HJS), an influential security think-tank, concluded Islamic State bride Shamima Begum is likely to see her Syria-born son Jerah removed from her care if she manages to return to Britain.
