Fears are growing for a young British child who is suspected of joining a group of savage extremists.

According to close friends and family, the unnamed individual was last seen pouring scorn on a Gatwick Airport baggage security officer for ‘showing too much ankle.’

One source said, ‘He’s been acting very strangely recently.’

‘One minute, he is talking about the benefits of food banks and how they are uplifting for society, and the next he is saying that any grocery handouts should be index-linked and deductible from any Universal Credit Payments.’

‘As far as we are aware, he has fled to the lawless, barren plains of Buckinghamshire for further brainwashing.’

‘All we know is that they are known as ERG.’
