Tony Nicklinson: Let doctors help me die

Tony Nicklinson has "locked-in syndrome". Following a stroke he cannot do anything for himself, and can only communicate by blinking at a screen to spell out his words.

He wants the right to have a doctor assist him to die without facing prosecution for murder.

The BBC's Medical Correspondent, Fergus Walsh, interviewed Mr Nicklinson regarding his court case.

Fergus Walsh talks about meeting Mr Nicklinson for the first time, and explains the arguments that his legal team will use in court, in his latest blog entry.
