Abdul Raqib Amin, who grew up in Aberdeen before travelling to Iraq to join the militant group, told Good Morning Britain there are thousands of recruits joining the fighters from around the world.

Raqib said that the group would not attack the UK "yet", but said that Britons were Kuffars, meaning disbelievers, as he issued a stark warning that the group were ready to attack anyone who went against them.

"Whoever opposes us, who goes against Islam, we fight anyone who wants to fight against Islam," he said.

Raqib has been identified as one of the British militants in a recruitment video for Isis, alongside fellow British jihadists Nasser Muthana and Reyaad Khan. In it, he said that he had suffered from depression while living in the West, before adding: "The cure for the depression is jihad.”
