The Foreign Office have said they are putting more pressure on the Sudanese government to release Meriam Ibrahim, who was sentenced to death for marrying a Christian man in the country.
Mark Simmonds, Minister for Africa, has said the UK government wants the appeals process in Khartoum "sped up".
Simmonds also said that Meriam should be released from prison on "medical grounds" after giving birth.
