A woman from Redcar, Lindsay Sandiford, has lost her appeal against the death penalty for smuggling cocaine into Indonesia. Bali's High Court confirmed the original sentence of death by firing squad still stands.
The British Foreign Office had asked for the sentence to be withdrawn. Mrs Sandiford's only option now is to appeal to Indonesia's Supreme Court.
