Alan Henning : British hostage beheaded

An Internet video released Friday purports to show a fighter for the Islamic State of Iraq and Syria (ISIS) beheading British hostage Alan Henning.

The 47 year-old former cabbie from Eccles was captured by militants from the extremist group Islamic State in December.

He was shown at the end of a video last month after the murder of fellow British captive David Haines with a warning that he would killed next.

And despite desperate pleas to spare him from his family and Muslim leaders across the world, tonight it appears he has been killed.

His wife Barbara made a direct, emotional appeal to his captors begging them to release him.

She was joined by Muslim leaders from across the world who have condemned the actions.

Whilst residents in his hometown decorated the streets in yellow ribbons as a show of support to his family.
