Laos prison Brit returns; DRUGS.

A PREGNANT British woman jailed for drug smuggling in Southern Asia spoke of her hell behind bars as she returned home last night.

Samantha Orobator was given life after being caught with 680gs of heroin in Laos.

As she arrived at Heathrow, the 20-year-old said: "I am happy to be back. It has been an unimaginable nightmare."

Samantha, of South London, was then taken to Holloway jail. She had faced the death penalty in Laos until she got pregnant behind bars.

She was returned to Britain after intervention by campaigners Reprieve and now hopes to be freed early.

Her mum Jane said: "I am delighted she is back home."
