Bali death row gran, Lindsay Sandiford from Cheltenham, appeals firing squad sentence
Grandma, Lindsay Sandiford, who has been sentenced to death in Bali after being caught smuggling cocaine, has appealed against her sentence.
The 56-year-old, who previously lived in Hester's Way, is arguing her sentence was too harsh and she should not face the firing squad.
Her lawyer, Fadillah Agus, says she provided information that led to other convictions. However, that help was not considered by the court.
Prosecutors on the island only called for Sandiford to be jailed for 15 years, but a judge sentenced her to death.

Custom officials found her at Bali's airport with 3.8 kilograms (8.4 pounds) of cocaine in the lining of her luggage.
Four others involved with the case received jail terms ranging from one to six years.
Sandiford said she was forced to transport the drugs by a gang threatening her children.
Indonesia has not killed anyone since 2008, when 10 people were put to death, leaving 113 prisoners remaining on death row.
