Bali drugs: MP 'appalled' by death sentence for Briton

A 56-year-old British grandmother has been sentenced to death in Indonesia for drug trafficking.

Lindsay Sandiford was arrested in May last year after Bali police, carrying out a routine customs check, found 4.8kg (10.6lb) of cocaine in the lining of her suitcase.

Sandiford, whose last UK address was in Gloucestershire, said she was coerced into bringing the drugs to the island.

Martin Horwood, MP for Cheltenham, told the BBC he was "appalled" by the development, which was "quite unexpected and obviously very worrying."
