Right-to-die campaigner and primary progressive multiple sclerosis sufferer Debbie Purdy has died.

The 51-year-old, from Bradford, won a landmark ruling in the House of Lords in 2009 resulting in guidelines on assisted suicide being published by the Government.

She died in the Marie Curie Hospice in her home city, where she had been staying for a year.

A Marie Curie spokesman confirmed her death, saying she died before Christmas.
