Friend's support for cancer patient's Dignitas trip to die

The friend of a terminal cancer patient who has travelled to a centre in Switzerland to end his life has said he supports his decision.

Bob Cole, 68, a former town councillor in north Wales, travelled to the Dignitas on Wednesday from his home in Chester.

His wife, Ann Hall, died at the same centre in Zurich last year and both campaigned for a change in the law on assisted suicide in the UK.

Rory Francis, Blaenau Ffestiniog, said he understood his friend's reason's for going.
