The woman, who cannot be named for legal reasons, was born into a cult and suffered abuse at the hands of some members of her extended family and friends. No criminal prosecution has so far been launched. The centre has experience of dealing with ritual abuse. The woman said: "The court has decided that I have an arguable case. It is now for Leeds City Council to answer for their actions." The full hearing will take place in August.
