Jonathan Willis

Local Live

The East Yorkshire-born actor and learning disabilities campaigner Lord Rix says he wants the law to be changed so that he can be helped to die.

Lord Rix says terminal illness has "left him like a beached whale", confined  to his bed and in constant discomfort.

He's previously opposed an assisted dying law because he feared that people with learning disabilities might become the unwilling victims of euthanasia.
