Motor neurone sufferer: 'I am facing Hayley's choice'

Coronation Street character Hayley Cropper made an emotional exit from the soap on Monday, taking her own life to escape terminal cancer.

Watching the programme with BBC Radio 5 live's Lesley Ashmall were a couple who face "the same choice" as Hayley and on-screen husband Roy - Paul and Sally Chamberlain.

Paul, who suffers from motor neurone disease, wants to take his own life once his illness becomes unbearable.

He said, "I know its going to get worse... I'd rather say goodbye to the family now while they remember me as a lively individual."
