In one conversation with an undercover journalist, Jones detailed the materials needed to make a bomb and said she could help construct a device remotely.

"The Americans zapped her trying to get away from Raqqa".

He said he would have preferred that Jones had faced trial, adding: "I represent a constituency that lost many people in 7/7 [the 2005 London bombings], and we remember what happened that day".

Major General Chip Chapman, the former MoD head of counter terror, told Sky News that Jones was a "significant" target for the USA and UK.

Reports suggest she was killed by a US Air Force Predator strike as she was attempting to flee Raqqa in Syria heading to Syria stronghold Mayadin.

Speaking to the BBC's Victoria Derbyshire programme, Moaveni said: "Having [Jones] on side was really important in terms of projecting the idea that Isis could get into the very furthest reaches of British society. She is the first woman I know of who's been specifically targeted in this way".
