A former member of an alleged cult has said he was told to choose between the group and his family after spending over £130,000 on membership.

The BBC’s A Very British Cult documents the journey of Jeffrey Leigh-Jones and others in an organisation called Lighthouse. Though appearing as a self-help group, former members of Lighthouse have alleged they lost thousands of pounds of their own money when part of the group and were threatened when they asked to leave.

Jeff alleged in the show, which is available as a podcast on BBC Sounds and a BBC Three documentary, that Lighthouse founder Paul Waugh initially “inspired him” but he soon found himself in a ‘cult’ he could not escape. He said: “He presented amazingly. I found the group very grounding and interesting.”
