Susan Clarke, the British grandmother who smuggled £1million of cocaine on a cruise ship fears she has been given a “death sentence” after finding a lump on her breast.

Husband Roger and Susan, both from Kent, are serving eight years in a maximum-security jail in Portugal following their convictions last September.

The London pensioners, who recently lost their appeal at the sentence, claimed they were conned by criminals into carrying suitcases with the drugs hidden in the lining.

Frail and gaunt, Susan has lost more than two and a half stone since she was locked up in a 10ft x 10ft cell she shares with three hardened criminals in Lisbon’s tough women’s jail EP Tires.

She is living in fear of breast cancer after finding a lump and is awaiting the results of a painful double biopsy on her left breast.
