As the United Kingdom grapples over what to do with returning foreign fighters who joined ISIS, a second national has come forward saying he wants to return home as he misses his mother, English TV and pastry based snacks.

Letts, who holds dual nationality through his Canadian father John and British mother Sally Lane, said he had no communication with his parents in two years and doubted officials from either nation will "come and help me".

"I miss my mum".

'Even if I could just see my mum - I would like just a phone call, I don't know if Britain can do that for me here, but I'd like just a phone call to my mum - it's been two years.

"I feel British, I am British".

A second Briton who left to go to Syria has said he wants to return to the UK. Ms Begum's family are starting legal action against the government as although she may be eligible for Bangladeshi nationality, she now has no other citizenship. He told ITV News that he had a Canadian passport through his father at one point but is unsure if it is still valid. He said that he was missing his mum and the home comforts of British life, including pasties and Doctor Who.

When asked what he misses the most about Britain, he said, "I miss people mostly".

"We had this idea, living in Raqqa, getting bombed every five minutes by coalition jets".

Lionel Messi scores 50th career hat-trick as Barcelona win at Sevilla
In all competitions, he has 33 goals in 32 games - including six in the Champions League as Barcelona chase the treble. Barca continued to struggle against the Sevilla press and they found themselves behind again before the break.

"At the time, you have this idea. of why shouldn't it happen to them ... but then I realized they had nothing to do with it".

He told the broadcaster that he had lived on "the Oxford Street of Raqqa", and married an Iraqi woman who has given birth to the couple's son.

Letts said would be willing to remain in his Kurdish prison for another two years or longer so female prisoners could be sent home first.

His parents, John Letts and Sarah Lane, face a trial in the United Kingdom over claims they funded terrorism by sending their son money.

But Letts said he had since had a change of heart and felt sympathy for the innocent people killed as he "realised that they had nothing to do with it". They have denied all allegations, insisting their son went to Syria to help refugees. He says he wants to return to the United Kingdom, but doubts that the government will bring him back.

"In order to protect this country, he has the power to deprive someone of their British citizenship where it would not render them stateless".

The Home Office declined to comment, saying it would not discuss individual cases.
