The solicitor for one of the two UK women arrested in Peru over alleged drugs smuggling said his client could be in jail for just over two years if they were to plead guilty.

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

Solicitor Peter Madden was speaking as he returned to Northern Ireland from Peru.
