Middlesex bank clerk's daughter fled to Syria with her ISIS husband where she was raped

Tania Joya, a mother-of-four who grew up in Harrow, Middlesex, (pictured left) read the story of Shamima Begum online from the comfortable apartment in Plano, Texas. Although Miss Joya, 35, now insists she is completely rehabilitated, she was once in Begum’s shoes. She was nicknamed ‘the first lady of ISIS’ after marrying an American Islamic convert (inset left) who became one of the state’s most senior commanders. Today (pictured centre in 2018) she says she has renounced extremism and, in an interview with the Daily Mail, called for Begum to be given a second chance for the sake of her unborn child – and for a law ‘to protect children from their religion’. Locked at home like a ‘house cat’, she was repeatedly raped while her husband courted the Islamic militia. ‘I used to cut myself just to keep him away from me, to stop him having sex with me,’ she said. Today, estranged from her British family, Miss Joya is the wife of IT executive Craig Bruma, 49 (right).

Why you might not see THIS view for much longer: Cottages on Seven Sisters cliffs could

These old coastguard cottages in front of the white Seven Sisters cliffs have featured in dozens of films including Atonement and Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire. And this month the sight was recognised as Britain’s Best View in a competition in the Daily Mail. But the land on which the hamlet of cottages has stood for 200 years near Cuckmere Haven, East Sussex, is slowly disappearing due to coastal erosion. For decades the descendants of the original coastguards have worked with officials to maintain the sea defences and stop the cottages being swept away. But in 2011 a new policy of managed coastal retreat was introduced by the Government, which meant the Environment Agency no longer has responsibility for shoring up sea defences. Residents have lodged a planning application with the South Downs National Park Authority to extend a sea wall but say they are being held back by bureaucracy.
