British pair on drug charges intend to plead 'guilty'

Two British women are appearing at court in Peru accused of trying to smuggle drugs out of the country.

Michaela McCollum and Melissa Reid, who are both 20, were arrested when 11kg of cocaine was found in their luggage, and initially said they were forced into carrying the drugs.

If convicted they could face 25 years in jail.
