A British man has been sentenced to six years in prison for receiving cocaine in Indonesia from a British grandmother who was sentenced to death last week.

Julian Anthony Ponder was found guilty of being an accomplice to 56-year-old Lindsay Sandiford. She was sentenced to death by firing squad for smuggling cocaine worth 2.5 million US dollars (£1.6 million) in her suitcase on to the resort island of Bali.

Presiding Judge Gunawan Tri Budiono said Ponder was convicted of possessing narcotics and also fined one billion rupiah (£65,000).

Two other British citizens and an Indian have also been convicted and jailed in connection with the case.

Indonesia, like many Asian countries, is very strict on drug crimes.
