A British woman faces the death penalty after allegedly attempting to smuggle £1.6m worth of cocaine into the Indonesian holiday island of Bali.

Customs officials said that Lindsay Sandiford, 56, was found with 4.7kg of cocaine in her suitcase on 19 May.

They also believe that three other British people and an Indian national were there to pick up the cargo.

Under Indonesia's strict drug laws, those found guilty of smuggling face death by firing squad. One hundred and forty people are on death row and a third of them are foreign nationals.
