Pregnant prisoner flies back to UK


A pregnant Briton jailed on drugs charges in Laos is on her way home to the UK to finish serving her sentence.

Samantha Orobator, 20, was caught with 1.5lb (680g) of heroin in August last year.

She conceived in prison while waiting trial, and avoided Laos's mandatory death penalty because of her pregnancy.
