Suicide tourism is on the rise, experts said after they found that the number of people travelling to Switzerland to take their own lives had doubled in four years.
One in five people who travelled to Zurich for assistedsuicide between 2008 and 2012 were from the UK, researchers found.
Experts from the University of Zurich analysed data from the Zurich Institute of Legal Medicine database on assisted suicide of non-Swiss residents during the five year period.
They looked at 611 cases from 31 countries around the world - 126 of which were people from Britain. Their paper, published in the Journal of Medical Ethics, found that in 2008 there were 123 cases of suicide tourism, while there were 172 cases reported in 2012.
