A terminally-ill British man who travelled to Switzerland's Dignitas euthanasia unit to die left a farewell message to friends.
Bob Cole, 68, was suffering from an aggressive form of lung cancer.
According to The Sun, Mr Cole listened to Beethoven's Ode to Joy in his best suit as he sipped the lethal cocktail that ended his life at 2.20pm.
Mr Cole, who invited ITV to travel with him to Switzerland, said he was left with little choice but to go abroad to end his life as the law in the UK bans assisted suicides.
