He denies all allegations and is not facing criminal charges.

An order preventing Cable from being identified in relation to the allegations has been overturned ahead of the trial.

The woman alleges Cable sexually abused her between 1968, when she was aged 12, and 1973.

She claims she suffered psychiatric harm as a result of sexual behaviour and harassment by Cable which she alleges continued until she was in her mid-30s.
