LINDSAY Sandiford, who was handed the death penalty for smuggling cocaine into Bali is reportedly suffering from depression.

Sandiford, who once lived in Hester's Way and Warden Hill, was sentenced this week after she was arrested in May last year with nearly five kilos of cocaine in her luggage.

A report in Indonesia, circulated by the Jakarta Globe, claimed she was reclusive and getting angry with fellow inmates and prison guards. She has four days to appeal the decision.

    There's no pleasing some people is there..... I wouldn't mind a very long holiday in Bali, all paid for. Just remember Lindsay, no-one forced you to travel there, yes I know you said someone had threatened your sons but next time do what everyone else would do. Report the threats to the 'ol bill and don't carry anyone elses bags for them on holiday.

    maybe it's her ploy, if she can get out the country using the British Consulate then she can be put in an open prison in the U.K. as she has depression.

    IS that because prisons that are outside the UK are actual prisons and not 'holiday camp' style prisons ?

    She's reclusive! I'm not surprised being in prison, I wouldn't expect her to be outgoing & happy. Wouldn't you be reflective & reclusive facing at best 15 years in a foreign jail or at worst a firing squad and not being able to visit her son in jail himself. Shouldn't have carried the drugs in your cases should you!
