() A letter which a murdered Islamic State hostage was forced to write to his parents urging them to raise almost £100million for his release has come to light for the first time. 

Former RAF engineer David Haines, 44, from Perth, Scotland, was murdered in Syria in September 2014 after being abducted and held prisoner for 18 months. 

In the letter, which was obtained by the Sunday Times, Mr Haines expressed his heartfelt wish to 'have the chance to see my children and hug them again... I don't think I would ever leave them again!!'

The father-of-two was one of 17 hostages, including American, Spanish and French citizens, who were held captive by the Beatles cell, who were given the name because of their English accents.

Mr Haines hoped in the letter the ransom amount, €100m, would not be 'impossible' to get. 

'They have released other hostages and also killed one,' he added. 

He then wrote: 'I am so sorry to put you through this ordeal and maybe you can forgive me one day. I know you will try your hardest. They are releasing the French.'

In the months before his death, his letter revealed, Mr Haines had suffered repeated illnesses, including a stomach ulcer. 

He wrote: 'My health is still deteriorating but I have been receiving good treatment as well as medication that seem to contain the
