The body of British woman Anna Campbell, who was killed while fighting against Isis in Syria, is still said to still be lying in rubble six weeks after she died.

The 26-year-old from Lewes, East Sussex, was part of the all female Kurdish Women’s Protection Unit in Afrin, a besieged city.

She died on March 15 after the convoy she was travelling in was hit by a Turkish missile.

Speaking to The Times, her dad Dirk said his daughter’s body has not yet been recovered by Turkish-baked forces.

He later said that the reason behind it was because ‘officials are not willing to endanger Britain’s relationship with Turkey’.

He said: ‘The FCO won’t have done anything specific. They’ve told me they can’t get involved in anything political.

‘Basically, they don’t want to tread on the toes of anybody or affect Britain’s relationship with Turkey.’

Following her death, Mr. Campbell described Anna as ‘very idealistic, very serious, very wholehearted and wanted to create a better world.’

He said: ‘She wasn’t fighting when she died, she was engaged in a defensive action against the Turkish Incursion.’

Mr. Campbell is now requesting to meet with Middle East minister Alistair Burt to speak about his daughter’s body.
