Locked-in syndrome sufferer dies at home

Tony Nicklinson passes away six days after losing landmark UK high court battle to be allowed to end his life.

    A British man who last week lost a landmark court battle to be allowed to end his life with medical help, has died.

    Tony Nicklinson had been almost completely paralysed since he suffered a massive stroke in 2005.

    It is believed he died of natural causes and British police say they are not investigating further.
