Sandiford case dismissed, update on Monday

British grandmother Lindsay Sandiford has lost her High Court battle today over a government refusal to fund her appeal against a death sentence imposed by an Indonesian court, after she was found guilty of drug smuggling.

Mrs Justice Gloster said that the court understood "the deep concerns of Mrs Sandiford and her family about Mrs Sandiford's predicament", but her case was dismissed for reasons to be given on Monday.
