A FORMER glamour model has been arrested on suspicion of possessing terrorist material, it has been reported. Kimberley Miners, who has posed topless for "The Sun", is believed to have secretly converted to Islam and her "liking" and sharing ISIS videos had triggered an investigation by Britain's anti-terrorist police and MI5 secret service.

According to "The Sunday Times", she was detained on Friday for alleged offences under the Terrorism Act 2000 after officers had repeatedly warned her about her contact with extremists online.

According to reports from the United Kingdom, the model was going by the name Aisha Lauren al-Britannia following her conversion to Islam past year. "I am a caring person and (have) a heart of gold", she said.

With the terrorist group increasingly losing ground in Iraq and Syria, where it originated and has implemented a self-styled 'caliphate', Isis has been increasingly looking overseas for new recruits.

Among the things that led to her arrest were regular Facebook posts of women brandishing weapons and - by her own admission - "a lot of bombs and stuff". That she visited Turkey twice did not seem to have helped her case.
