A BRITISH ex-soldier who went to Syria to fight IS had terror charges against him dropped yesterday.
Daniel Burke, 33, told The Sun he is now “really looking forward to a Domino’s Pizza”.
He, along with father and son Paul and Samuel Newey, faced years behind bars for helping the Kurds fight IS.
Mr Burke, from Manchester, was in custody since last December until set free at the Old Bailey.
Prosecutors said there was “insufficient evidence to sustain a realistic prospect of conviction”.
The Neweys, from Solihull, West Mids, were accused of assisting Paul’s son Daniel Newey, another fighter.
Charges against them were also dropped.
Paul, 49, said: “It’s all a bit surreal – I am disgusted and angry, really.
