Footage has emerged which appears to show a truck, apparently driven by Abdul Waheed Majeed on his way to carry out a suicide attack in Aleppo.
Majeed is said to have driven a lorry into a jail in Aleppo and detonated a bomb last week, and is thought to be the first Briton to stage a suicide attack in the war-torn state.
The family of a man suspected to be the first British suicide bomber in Syria was in the country doing humanitarian work for a charity, his family says.
Abdul Waheed Majeed is a father of two boys and a girl aged 18, 16 and 12. He was born and bred in Crawley and worked as a highways contractor.
His uncle, Mohammad Jamil, 65, said Majeed had never shown any sign of extremism. He said: "If the family knew about this, we wouldn't have let him go."
Arif Syed, a community leader in Crawley, said Majeed would phone or Skype his family every three days, but communication was lost with him about seven days ago.
"He has mostly been working with a charity on the refugee camps and distributing aid which he collected from here and other towns in the UK," Mr Syed said.
