A man who lost his wife to cancer says he regrets being unable to end her suffering and wants a change in the law on assisted suicide.

Steve Riley-Snelling's wife Tracy, 49, died at their home in Milton Keynes in October, seven weeks after their wedding.

He is giving his backing to a new bill on assisted dying, which is due to go before the House of Lords in two weeks' time.

Neil Bradford reports.
