Grandmother Lindsay Sandiford, who's originally from East Yorkshire, and Gareth Cashmore from Wakefield have been sentenced to death by firing squad for trafficking drugs into Indonesia.

Baroness Warsi has lost her job as Conservative Party Co-Chair but will still attend Cabinet after being handed other roles.Read the full story ›
Dewsbury-born Baroness Warsi has been axed in David Cameron's first Cabinet re-shuffle since becoming Prime Minister. Sayeeda Warsi tweeted it had " been a privilege and an honour to serve my party as co-chairman".
The co-chairman of the Conservative Party Baroness Warsi has been cleared of allegations she wrongly claimed Parliamentary expenses.
It was alleged the Dewsbury-born peer had claimed overnight expenses for staying in London while living rent-free at a friend's house.
An official investigation has now exonerated her.
I asked Sir Alex Allan to look into allegations that Baroness Warsi had breached the ministerial code. He has reported back to me and I am satisfied with the conclusion he has reached that at no point did she use her office for any personal financial gain. He found that while there was a breach of the code it was a minor one for which Baroness Warsi has already apologised. Baroness Warsi is a great asset in building our reputation overseas and representing the British Government abroad in her role as Minister without Portfolio."
