Grey-Thompson opposes call for assisted suicide changes

A panel of legal and medical experts has called for people who are terminally ill and likely to die within a year to be allowed help to end their lives.

Groups, including the British Medical Association, have accused the panel of bias.

Baroness Tanni Grey-Thompson, who competed in the Paralympics, told Radio 5 live's Victoria Derbyshire that the panel's conclusion was the first step on a "slippery slope to something worse".
