Mr Nicklinson was left paralysed with locked in syndrome after suffering a stroke in 2005 .  He communicated only by blinking and relied upon round the clock care from nurses and his loved ones.  He described his life as a 'living nightmare' and was therefore devastated by the courts ruling that it would remain unlawful for anyone to assist his suicide.  He was '...saddened that the law wants to condemn me to a life of increasing indignity and misery" and planned to appeal.

My thoughts go out to his family.
