A man left paralysed and in constant pain is challenging the law to allow doctors to help him to die.

Paul Lamb, 58, from Leeds, was paralysed from the neck down following a road accident 23 years ago. He has continual pain and requires 24-hour care.

He said it would give him some pride in death if he were able to secure a change in the law.
