The widow of Tony Nicklinson, the stroke survivor who lost his right to die case at the High Court last year, has been given permission by the Court of Appeal in London to carry on the legal battle.
Jane Nicklinson will be joined by a 57 year old man paralysed in a road traffic crash 23 years ago, who was granted permission by the appeal court judge Lord Justice Elias to be added to the legal action.
