British jihadist Sally Jones has been killed in a US drone strike in Syria, The Sun has reported.

The former punk rocker from Kent fled to Syria with her son in 2013 and became known as the White Widow after working as a leading recruitment officer for Islamic State.

According to The Sun, the Government was informed by CIA chiefs in June that US forces had killed Jones, 50, in a missile strike close to the Iraq/Syria border.
