A grandmother, originally from Redcar and sentenced to death by firing squad for smuggling cocaine into Bali, has notified Indonesian officials that she intends to appeal against the ruling.
56-year-old Lindsay Sandiford was convicted last week of taking 10.6lb (4.8kg) of the drug into the country.
She was accused by the court of damaging the image of Bali and received the sentence despite prosecutors only asking for a 15-year jail term.
A court official confirmed his office had received the appeal request through the head of Kerobokan Penitentiary where Sandiford is being held.
