Indonesian officials have announced another round of executions would go ahead in the next few months.

Lindsay Sandiford is on death row after she was rumbled smuggling 3.8 kilograms of cocaine when she arrived in the Indonesian island of Bali from Bangkok in 2012.

The 59-year-old admitted the offences – but claimed she was coerced by threats to her son’s life.

David Cameron discussed Sandiford’s case with President Jokowi of Indonesia in July.

But his mercy pleas appear to have fallen on deaf ears and she now faces execution.

Sandiford from Redcar, North Yorkshire, could now be shot within months, reports her local newspaper, the Middlesbrough Gazette.

The Guardian also reports a batch of state-sanctioned killings are set to go ahead.

The gran has been distracting herself from her horrific fate by teaching 20 other inmates to make teddy bears, jumpers and shawls.

“Knitting stops me from going insane,” she told the Mail on Sunday.

While Sandiford faces death at the end of a gun barrel, agreed to expel her from the country.
