The Home Secretary told LBC that humanitarian workers should not go to Syria.

Speaking to Iain Dale at the Conservative Party Conference, she warned against aid workers heading to the areas that ISIL are controlling.

It comes after British aid worker David Haines was beheaded in a brutal video by the group.

Ms May told LBC: "I would hope that young people would see that brutality and not want to be part of it.

"We give a very strong message to people that if you want to go to Syria for humanitarian purposes, there are other ways to give humanitarian help and support without actually having to go there.

"You can do work in this country with charities that are helping people out there.

"So my message to people who want to help for humanitarian purposes is don't go."
