- John Letts, 56, and Sally Lane, 54, say government has failed to help their child
- Son Jack flew to Syria after converting to Islam and is suspected of joining ISIS
- Parents facing charges of funding terrorism but they strongly deny claims
The parents of the Muslim convert known as ‘Jihadi Jack’ say they are embarking on a hunger strike in protest of the government’s inaction to help their 21-year-old son.
John Letts, 56, and Sally Lane, 54, began their week-long fast on the steps of St Paul’s Cathedral in central London at 1pm on Thursday.
They say it is a demonstration against parliament’s failure to help bring their son home.
Jack Letts, 21, disappeared to Syria after converting to Islam, earning him the name ‘Jihadi Jack’.
