British jihadist Sally Jones has been killed by a US drone strike, according to a report.

The onetime punk rocker from Kent went to Syria with her son in 2013.

But now - according to The Sun - she has been killed close to the Iraq-Syria border by an American aircraft.          

Considered Britain's most-wanted woman, Jones - known as the White Widow - was a recruiter for Islamic State.

The Sun quotes a Whitehall source as saying: 'The Americans zapped her trying to get away from Raqqa. Quite frankly, it's good riddance.'

She was believed to have been heading toward the Syrian border settlement of Mayadin as the ISIS capital besieged by coalition forces.

According to the report, the CIA told the Government in June that the 50-year-old had been killed by a Predator drone that month.
