The parents of a man thought to be fighting in Syria with the so-called Islamic State will stand trial in January accused of funding terrorism.

Jack Letts, 20, dubbed “Jihadi Jack” by some newspapers, is thought to be the first white Briton fighting in Syria.

John Letts, 55, and Sally Lane, 54, have been charged making money available for terrorism purposes.

The pair are accused of sending money to their son, and will appear in court for a plea hearing on 17 November.

Mr Letts and Ms Lane, both of Chilswell Road, Oxford, were charged on 9 June.

They are accused of three counts of entering into a funding arrangement contrary to the Terrorism Act 2000.

Ms Lane is further charged with attempting to provide money knowing or having reasonable cause to suspect that it may be used for a terrorist purpose, contrary to the Terrorism Act 2000.
