THE BODY of a Hampshire man who was killed fighting in Syria is being flown back to the UK.

Twenty-year-old Ryan Lock was from Chichester and went to school in Havant. His body was recovered from so-called Islamic State territory after he died during a battle for the IS stronghold of Raqqa.

The chef travelled to Syria in August and told loved ones he was going on holiday. A military ceremony was held for him at the Iraq border.
