A heavily-paralysed man has waived his right to anonymity to become the new figurehead of a right-to-die campaign.
Paul Lamb, who was previously referred to as "Patient L", has adopted the legal fight previously fronted by locked-in sufferer Tony Nicklinson.
Mr Nicklinson died last year, days after losing his High Court battle to be permitted to die with the help of a doctor.
Mr Lamb's assumption of his legal challenge, which was granted by the Court of Appeal last month, will be joined by a case brought by Mr Nicklinson's widow Jane Nicklinson.
She is pursuing a claim in her own right that she suffered pain, distress and injury as a result of her husband's inability to lawfully end his own life.
Both cases will now be heard in the Court of Appeal next month.
