Lindsay Sandiford accuses government of condoning death penalty

Lindsay Sandiford is facing the death sentence in Indonesia

A woman from Teesside who is facing the death penalty in Indonesia has criticised the British government from her prison cell.

Lindsay Sandiford, who's originally from Redcar, says not enough has been done to help her.

She's accused of being at the centre of a drug smuggling ring and is in prison in Bali. Ms Sandiford claims the government's action is 'tantamount to condoning the death penalty'. The deadline for lodging the latest stage of her appeal against the death sentence is early next week.
