Sir Terry Pratchett has said he is ready to be a test case for assisted suicide "tribunals" which could give people legal permission to end their lives.

The author, who has Alzheimer's, says he wants a tribunal set up to help those with incurable diseases end their lives with help from doctors.

Sir Terry explains how the tribunals would work for patients who are terminally ill.
