A charity fundraising site has raised the £8,000 needed by a woman from Redcar who is on death row in Indonesia. Lindsay Sandiford needs the money to make a final appeal against the death sentence for drug smuggling.
It comes after the British courts threw out Mrs Sandiford's bid to force the government to pay for her case on the grounds that she is now penniless.
