A mother and her four children believed to be travelling from London to Syria have been detained in Turkey, police have said.

The family went missing from their home in Waltham Forest, from east London, last week and were thought to have left via London City Airport.

According to the BBC, Turkish authorities told police officers in London the woman and her children were safe and well.

Richard Walton, of the Met’s counter-terrorism command, thanked the public and the media for helping to find the family.
