Two arrested in assisted suicide claim

Two people have been arrested over claims they could be planning to take a "vulnerable" pensioner to end his life at an assisted suicide centre in Switzerland.

A woman, 65, and a man, 25, from the Chichester area, were questioned on suspicion of encouraging or assisting a suicide. Both have been released on bail.

Correspondent Sophie Hutchinson says there are concerns that the man in question could be in the early stages of dementia.
