Brit gran Susan Clarke dies in agony alone after being ‘abandoned’ in Portuguese prison for smuggling £1m of cocaine


A BRITISH gran jailed for smuggling £1million of cocaine has died in agony alone in a Portuguese prison.

Susan Clarke, 72, died of breast cancer last Sunday in the jail where she was serving eight years, the Sunday Mirror reports.

As her condition got worse she was granted a last visit from husband Roger, 73.

They had been caged two years ago and sent to separate jails.

A source told the Sunday Mirror Susan had been due to return to England to finish her sentence.

They said being without her family in her last hours must have been “torture”.


The source said: “She was handed a life sentence – left to die in a foreign prison with no loved ones around her.

“Four weeks ago she was given one last visit with Roger. They saw each other through a Perspex window.

“She had a lump in her throat which meant she couldn’t actually speak.

“She was battling breast cancer but the doctors in Portugal decided that there was nothing they could do for her, so they stopped her treatment."

Clarke, from Kent, was serving eight years in a maximum-security jail in Portugal following her conviction in September, 2019.
