JIHADI bride Shamima Begum was a victim of grooming and Britain failed her, a lawyer claims.

Begum fled to Syria aged 15 with two East London pals and joined IS, helping to stitch suicide vests for bombers.

Now 19, she had three babies who all died and is stuck in a refugee camp after Home Secretary Sajid Javid acted to strip her of British citizenship.

Tasnime Akunjee, representing Begum’s family, branded the move “human fly-tipping”.

He also called it a “politically driven abuse of power” aimed at boosting Mr Javid’s bid to be PM.

Mr Akunjee said Begum was “born, raised, groomed and radicalised here in the UK”.

He claimed if her family had been told police quizzed her about a schoolpal going to Syria, they could have stopped her following.
