Anna Campbell, 27, from Bristol, was killed in a Turkish airstrike in 2018.

Her family say they know where she is buried and have been campaigning to get the Turkish government to send her body back to the UK.

Dirk Campbell is taking his case to the European Court of Human Rights to force Turkey to act.

He said the Turkish government has ignored all his requests so far and accused the British government of not supporting his cause.

Mr Campbell said: "Though they are in control of Afrin canton, the Turkish authorities have refused to even reply to my request to be given safe conduct to where my daughter was killed. They have refused to engage with me at all.

"The British Foreign Office has been no help. So, I am taking my case to the European Court of Human Rights where I hope to be given justice and to have international attention drawn to Turkey's widespread crimes against humanity."

Ms Campbell, originally from East Sussex, travelled to Syria in May 2017 against the advice of the UK authorities to help the Kurds, who were fighting the Islamic State (IS) group.

The BBC understands she had originally been involved in the fighting with the all-female Kurdish armed unit, YPJ, in Deir ez-Zor, where IS continued to try to hold on to territory.

But in January 2018, Turkish forces began a major offensive against the Kurds along the northern Syrian border.
