Tonight's episode features the Meek family from Nottinghamshire, who gave up their jobs, took their children out of school and set off for a year on the open roads in their caravan.

Three men who fought against ISIS in Syria alongside a Nottinghamshire based man are coming to a cemetery in the city to pay their respects.

Konstandinos Scurfield was a British ex-Royal Marine, who was killed earlier this year.

His mother has launched her own awareness campaign, which includes documenting the death of every single person killed by ISIS.

She says that the "thought that British-born people are going out to fight for ISIS, killing innocent people and then coming back to this country is sickening".

The body of Konstandinos Erik Scurfield was brought home in March earlier this year.

He has been hailed a "hero" by the Kurdish community in Britain.
