A grandmother from Cheltenham has been granted a reprieve from execution by an Indonesian firing squad, after the country announced a temporary halt in its use of the death sentence.
59-year-old Lindsay Sandiford is due to be executed after she was convicted of trying to smuggle 3.8kg of cocaine into Bali in 2012.
Indonesia's Chief Security Minister Luhut Panjaitan told a new conference the country would temporarily stop all executions.
Indonesia has some of the toughest drug laws in the world. This year it has executed 14 people by firing squad.

A Cheltenham grandmother, sentenced to die for drug smuggling, has met her two-year-old granddaughter for the first time - just weeks before she is due to be executed in Bali.
Lindsay Sandiford's granddaughter Ayla rushed to visit the 59-year-old after her lawyers were told her name was on a list of ten drug traffickers scheduled to be shot on September 21.
Since then however her legal team has been told by Indonesian government officials there will be a temporary suspension of executions until the end of the year - meaning she could face the firing squad as early as January.
The decision means Mrs Sandiford - who has been refused legal funding by the British government - now has only weeks to raise the £25,000 she needs to fund a final appeal against her death penalty.
The grandmother met Ayla during several emotional meetings last week, where the pair hugged and played in a visiting room at Kerobokan prison, where she is being held.
She was also reunited with her 26-year-old son Lewis - Ayla's father - for the first time since her arrest in 2012.

The family of John Welch, from Corsham in West Wiltshire have paid tribute to him today and say "he will be greatly missed by us all".
The 74-year-old whose funeral took place at West Wiltshire crematorium this lunchtime, was killed last month in a terror attack at a Tunisian beach resort.
He was on holiday with his partner Eileen Swannack from Biddestone who was also killed along with 30 other Britons.
Dad was a kind, caring and generous man. Always willing to lend a hand. He had a great sense of humour and was good fun to be with. He always said hello, and as so many people have commented on, had the most 'amazing blue eyes'.
He will be greatly missed by us all.
Our thoughts are also with Eileen’s family and all of those who have also lost loved ones in this terrible event.
