London Mayor Sadiq Khan has implied he does not agree with the Home Office’s decision to challenge the Court of Appeal ruling allowing Shamima Begum to return to the UK to seek the reinstatement of her British citizenship.

Speaking on Friday Mr Khan said:

On Thursday, senior judges said Ms Begum – one of three east London schoolgirls who travelled to Syria to join the so-called Islamic State group – should be allowed to return to the UK to fight the decision to remove her British citizenship.
