The Peru Two - the story so far

Melissa Reid and Michaella McCollum were sentenced to six years and eight months in a Peru jail for their part in an international drug smuggling plot.

McCollum and Reid, both 20, were found with 11kgs of cocaine, with a street value of £1.5 million, in their luggage at Lima International Airport in August 2013.

  • The pair met in Ibiza and originally claimed they were held at gunpoint by a Spanish armed gang and forced to smuggle the drugs.
  • However, the pair both plead guilty to drug smuggling and admitted they were involved in the drug smuggling plot. This helped them avoid the maximum 15 year jail term for drug smuggling in Peru.
  • McCollum and Reid are being held at the Ancon 2 prison in Lima. The prison holds about 325 foreign prisoners, including more than 100 women, mainly serving time for drug charges
  • McCollum is in the process of being transferred back to her home town of Belfast to serve out the remainder of her sentence in a prison there.
  • Reid's family have also been trying to get her moved to a prison in Scotland.

Surgery 'needs to triple' for obese diabetic patients

The number of obese patients with Type 2 diabetes having drastic weight loss surgery needs to triple over the next few years in order to help the NHS combat the rising caseload caused by sick people with poor diets.

In a U-turn on guidance, the National Institute for Care and Excellence (Nice) said moved away from encouraging doctors to look at gastric bypass and sleeve gastrectomy surgery as "a last resort". Instead, the want an estimated two million people in England to be considered for the £6,000 operation.

Patients with obesity and diabetes continues to rise with many doctors vocal about their worry about the undue stress it will put on the NHS. Currently, one in 20 people in the UK with Type 2 diabetes occupies one in six beds in some hospitals because of complications caused by the disease, Nice said.
