Bali drugs: Death sentence for Briton Lindsay Sandiford

A British grandmother has been sentenced to death by firing squad in Indonesia for drug trafficking.

Lindsay Sandiford, 56, was arrested at Bali's airport in May last year after 4.8kg (10.6lb) of cocaine was found in the lining of her suitcase during a routine customs check.

Her lawyers say they are "surprised" at the sentence and will appeal.

Foreign Office minister Hugo Swire has condemned the sentence.
