Mother of son killed fighting ISIS calls for government to do more

The mother of Konstandinos Erik Scurfield, the first British person killed fighting ISIS militants in Syria, has started a campaign calling for the Government to do more to stop ISIS.

Vasiliki Scurfield is planning a Twitter storm today using the hashtag #stopISIScampaig.

The 25-year-old from Barnsley died in March after travelling to the country to help civilians caught up in the fighting:

Hundreds of mourners turned out to pay their final respects to him in March where his coffin was draped in the Union Jack and a flag of the Kurdish People's Protection Units, among other flags, along with flowers and a picture of Mr Scurfield.
