Paralympic multi-gold medallist Baroness Tanni Grey-Thompson, has spoken out against the legalisation of assisted dying, warning that a bill proposed by former Labour Lord Chancellor Lord Falconer does not have "adequate safeguards".

Speaking to the BBC, Baroness Grey-Thompson also suggested that allowing people the "right to die" was "a really dangerous path to go down", as some people might feel they were a burden to society and therefore had a "duty to die".
