Daughter's 'pride' for right-to-die mother Jean Davies

A long-term campaigner for the right to die starved herself to death over five weeks because she could not end her life legally.

Jean Davies, 86, was not terminally ill but a number of health conditions had made her life "intolerable" and she wanted to die at home.

Her daughter Bronwen Davies, a nurse from Cardiff, told Oliver Hides she was incredibly proud of her mother, who died on 1 October.
