A British man trying to return home from fighting in Syria has told ITV News he fears what might happen to him if he does.
The man - who spoke on condition of anonymity - says he went to Syria a year ago to fight the Assad regime, not to bring terror back to the streets of Britain.
Before he joined the conflict, he had a full-time job earning a £40,000 salary.
But now he says he has little choice but to carry on fighting as he does not known what will happen to him under the government's proposed new counter-terror laws.
