Tony Nicklinson: Widow's hopes for campaign

The wife of Tony Nicklinson, who died last week after losing a legal bid to end his life, said she hoped this would not be the end of the campaign.

Jane Nicklinson's 58-year-old husband had locked-in syndrome after a stroke left him paralysed seven years ago.

He lost his High Court case to allow doctors to end his life without fear of prosecution on 16 August.

Mr Nicklinson died from pneumonia at his home in Wiltshire on 22 August after refusing food and fluids.

Simon Clemison reports.
