Locked-in syndrome man Nicklinson wants the right to die


Suffering from locked-in syndrome, Tony Nicklinson is paralysed from the neck down and only able to communicate through eye movements.

He wants to die, but is physically unable to commit suicide and is campaigning for a change in the law so that his wife can end his life without being charged with his murder.
