Britain's Royal Air Force (RAF) has sent the so-called Islamic State (IS) a strong message - in the form of a Paveway IV bomb.

Scrawled on the outside of the missile was written "Love from Manchester".

It is believed the note came from a drone squadron located at an undisclosed location in the Middle East.

The picture was posted to Twitter with the caption: "RAF Armourer on a Reaper UAV squadron wrote this on a Hellfire missile before taking off on a Syria mission".

The RAF have confirmed the photo is accurate, but say the person responsible is unlikely to get in trouble.

"The RAF can confirm the photo was genuine," a spokesperson told the MailOnline.

A source added: "The sentiment of the message is understandable under the circumstances."

"It's unlikely the individual responsible for it will be disciplined," they continued.

"There's a history of messages being written on missiles in the RAF."
