'I don't want people's sympathy - I want people's help'

A paralysed road accident victim who wants the law changed so that he can be allowed to die with the help of a doctor, says he doesn't want people's sympathy, he wants their help.

Paul Lamb and the family of the late Tony Nicklinson, who had locked-in syndrome, are having their arguments heard by the Supreme Court.

Mr Lamb said that a change in the law would mean that he would have peace of mind.
