An autistic woman who was raped at a care home has been diagnosed with HIV.

The abuse took place at a facility in north London, allegedly by a night shift worker.

A report by Independent Brent Safeguarding Adults Board revealed the shocking abuse at the independent care home, which could have taken place at any time between 2006 and 2016. The woman in her 50s, renamed as 'Cassie' in the report to protect her identity, was found to have HIV after she collapsed in 2016 and was taken to Guy's Hospital. She had been in care since childhood and began suffering from rashes, bruising, teeth problems and had lost her appetite from around 2007, the report said.

Police were called when it was ruled by doctors that the disease was sexually transmitted and she lacked the mental capability to consent to sex.

A report by Dr Margaret Flynn, found that that Cassie, or 'Adult B', was 'failed by services'.
