Convicted drugs mule Melissa Reid could serve the rest of her sentence in the UK as Peru seeks a jail transfer.

The 20-year-old may return home in the coming months after it emerged the Scottish Prison Service is considering a repatriation application from Lima authorities.

Reid pleaded guilty to drug smuggling along with Michaella McCollum from Co Tyrone in September. Both were jailed for six years and eight months.
