Two UK women arrested in Peru on suspicion of drugs smuggling have arrived at court to find out if they are to be charged.

Michaella McCollum, from Dungannon, in Northern Ireland and Melissa Reid, from Lenzie near Glasgow, both 20, are accused of trying to smuggle 11kg (24lb) of cocaine.

The pair were stopped while trying to board a flight to Madrid two weeks ago.
