Paul Lamb takes up right-to-die legal fight

A man who is paralysed from the neck down is taking up the legal challenge previously mounted by the late Tony Nicklinson, for the right-to-die with the help of a doctor.

Paul Lamb, 58, from Leeds, has joined forces with the family of Mr Nicklinson, who died in August 2012, a week after his legal bid had failed.

Anti-euthanasia campaigners say the current law protects vulnerable people.

Clive Coleman reports.
