There were emotional scenes at Manchester Airport today where hundreds of members of the Kurdish community from across the UK gathered to pay respects to a former marine from Barnsley.
Konstandinos Erik Scurfield, known as Kosta, became the first Briton to be killed fighting Islamic State and is being hailed a national hero by Kurds who say he died fighting for their freedom in Syria. Today they mobbed the hearse carrying his coffin and covered it in flowers as his body arrived back at Manchester Airpoirt. Chris Kiddey was there.
The funeral of a former Royal Marine from Barnsley killed while fighting Islamic State in Syria has taken place.
