Daughters' heartbreaking decision to help mum die

Two daughters are selling tickets for girls night out - to pay to send their mother to a Swiss clinic to die.

Mum Jackie Baker, 59, of Swansea wants to travel to the Dignitas euthanasia clinic after being struck down by terminal illness.

ITV Cymru Wales' health correspondent Rob Osborne has been speaking to the family:

Now her daughters Tara O'Reilly and Rose Baker are desperately trying to raise £8,000 so their mother can "die with dignity" in Switzerland.

Hairdresser Tara, 40, is selling tickets for a girls night to fund the heartbreaking trip.

The fundraiser is being held in Llanelli this Friday.

'Environmentally-friendly' school for Llanelli

A new, environmentally-friendly school, will be officially opened today in Llanelli.

Ysgol Gymraeg Ffwrnes has been funded jointly by the Welsh Government and Carmarthenshire County Council.

It has been rated BREEAM “Outstanding” because of its environmentally-friendly features, including rainwater harvesting, external planting areas, solar panels and renewable energy sources.

When we invest in major capital projects like Ysgol Ffwrnes we are not only investing in the school and the futures of young people but also local communities.

This construction has provided training and employment opportunities which have benefited the local economy. I’m sure that pupils and teachers of Ysgol Ffwrnes will enjoy their new school for many years to come.

He has had his taxi licence suspended for three weeks.
