Indonesian customs officials have said that a Redcar woman who was arrested on suspicion of drug smuggling could be spared the death penalty.
Lindsay Sandiford, 55, was allegedly caught with 4.8 kilos of cocaine in her suitcase on arrival at Bali Ngurah International Airport on May 19.
It's estimated the haul had a street value of around £1.6 million.
Made Wijaya, a Bali customs agent, initially said the punishment for drug smuggling is usually a death sentence.
But officials have said that Mrs Sandiford may escape the death penalty because she helped catch three other members of a suspected drug trafficking ring.
Three Britons and an Indian man were also arrested.
