Failed death sentence appeal for Cheltenham Grandmother

Foreign Office has confirmed that a grandmother from Cheltenham has lost her appeal against a death sentence for drug trafficking in Bali. Lindsay Sandiford was sentenced to death by firing squad for smuggling more than £1.5 million of cocaine into the country in May last year.

She claimed she was forced to do it. There are reports that the Indonesian Supreme Court judges have rejected her second - and possibly final - appeal.
