A British grandmother who has been sentenced to death by firing squad for drug smuggling in Bali has lodged an appeal at Indonesia's Supreme Court, pressure group Reprieve has said.

It is Lindsay Sandiford's second bid to overturn her death penalty after she lost her first appeal at the Bali High Court last month.

Balinese police claim the 56-year-old was at the centre of a drugs-importing ring after bringing £1.6 million of cocaine into the country. She denies the allegations.
