'Cult victim' recalls time with leader Lyons

A woman who was sexually abused by a cult leader sentenced to 10 years in prison has described how she was taken in by him.

She told the BBC Michael Lyons, who used the name Mohan Singh, played on "things like good behaviour, politeness, hospitality".

She said the community, which police described as predominantly educated female followers, were taken in because "he is sicker than we were smart".
