Right-to-die man Tony Nicklinson dies of natural causes

Tony Nicklinson, a man with locked-in syndrome who fought for the right to legally end his life, has died.

The 58-year-old was paralysed from the neck down after suffering a stroke in 2005 and described his life as a "living nightmare".

Last week Mr Nicklinson, from Melksham, Wiltshire, lost his High Court case to allow doctors to end his life.

Branwen Jeffreys reports.
