Deliver Us from Evil. Devil worship, blood drinking, black masses, human sacrifices, bestiality, the ceremonial sexual abuse of children
- the stuff of tacky tabloid articles and schlock-horror novels? Perhaps not. Chris Johnston , a social worker in Nottingham, began to hear such stories from a group of children in her care. Eventually she began to believe them. But such cases are notoriously difficult to prove and Chris and her team quickly came up against a wall of disbelief from both fellow workers and police.
Joan Bakewell looks at the evidence for ritual abuse and asks how we deal with something we cannot prove, but cannot ignore.
