A study in Switzerland says that, on average, one British person a fortnight travels to the city of Zurich for help to end their lives.

Researchers from Zurich University said 126 Britons visited the country's clinics to die between 2008 and 2012.

Assisted suicide is illegal in the UK but permitted in Switzerland.
