Debbie Purdy, who has multiple sclerosis, won a landmark victory in the House of Lords today in her fight to allow her husband to help her commit suicide.

Five Law Lords unanimously backed her call for a policy statement from the Director of Public Prosecutions (DPP) on the circumstances in which a person such as her husband might face prosecution for helping a loved one end their life abroad.

Ms Purdy, 46, who is married to the Cuban violinist Omar Puente, took her case to the House of Lords after the High Court and Court of Appeal ruled that it was for Parliament, not the courts, to change the law.

This is long overdue
