A 19-year-old boy with "no military experience" has gone to fight in Ukraine, according to his mum.

The Call of Duty fanatic, known only as Jamie, has apparently "never shot a rifle" and had been joking about going to the war-stricken country before contacting a London organisation to confirm it. He left 36 hours later.

Jamie has been checking in with his mum regularly to let her know he is safe.
