A “radicalised” chemistry teacher whose family hid his passport in a desperate attempt to stop him joining Isis has been jailed for six years.

Jamshed Javeed was poised to travel to Syria in late 2013 to fight alongside the group, which later became widely known as Islamic State.

After helping his younger brother make the trip, he prepared to follow from his Manchester home.

At an earlier hearing he admitted two terror offences, but insisted he was travelling only to support the people of Syria, not to join the terror group.

But, jailing the 30-year-old, Judge Michael Topolski said he was “not satisfied” that Javeed had rejected “Isis’s ultimate aims”.
