A scientist who is campaigning for the use of 3D printed 'do-it-yourself death pods' wants Scotland to take the hi-tech approach to assisted suicide.

Users would be locked in an airtight chamber if they used the capsules created by 'Dr Death' Philip Nitschke. After the chamber locks, it would be filled with nitrogen gas - knocking people unconscious within one minute and killing them within ten minutes.

Nitschke has now urged a Scots MSP to back the pods, writing to Lib Dem MSP Liam McArthur who is behind an assisted suicide Bill at Holyrood.
