ITV News believes this woman to be Aishah, the 69-year-old Malaysian woman rescued from the alleged 'slavery' house in south London.

She is pictured in a 1997 documentary about the death of Sian Davies, who died following a fall from a window of a house used by the group.

According the press reports from 1978, a 34-year-old woman called Aishe Waham was arrested following a police raid on the group's headquarters.

Press reports from 1997 quote an Aisha Wahab giving evidence at a coroners' inquest into Sian Davies' death.

A Telegraph report today says the woman was originally known as Aishah Mautum, who moved to Britain in 1968 from Malaysia before becoming involved with the Maoist group.
