The alleged sexual assault victim of MP Mike Hancock has won a bid to force a Lib-Dem-led council to make available a full version of a QC's report about her accusations at a forthcoming civil court action.
Portsmouth City Council, where Hancock is a councillor, opposed the application for full disclosure of the report - a redacted version of which has already been leaked to the public.
But Master Leslie, a High Court official, ruled disclosure was necessary so that the woman could feel she had "a fair hearing and a fair crack of the whip".
