A couple accused of drug smuggling on a holiday isle have been charged - and are expected to go on trial within weeks. Julian Ponder and Rachel Dougall, from Brighton, were arrested on the Indonesian island of Bali in May this year. They're said to have been involved in an international drug smuggling ring after £1.6m worth of cocaine was discovered in a suitcase. If convicted Mr Ponder could face the death penalty, Miss Dougall life imprisonment. More later.
