More than £8000 raised for Lindsay Sandiford's appeal

Donations through the charity site Just Giving have raised over £8000 to help pay for Redcar grandmother Lindsay Sandiford's appeal against her death sentence in Bali.

The 56-year-old lost her appeal over a UK Government refusal to fund her legal challenge yesterday.

She had previously said that she did not have the £8000 figure needed to pay for a final appeal against her death sentence by firing squad.

The charity Reprieve, who have been campaigning for support for Lindsay Sandiford, have confirmed that the money donated through Just Giving will be used, through them, to fund her upcoming appeal at Indonesia's Supreme Court.
