A document leaked to BBC London has revealed that a Hindu temple in south London may have possible links to a rebel organisation.

The Armulmihu Hindu temple in Tooting has had its assets frozen pending an investigation into alleged links with the UK banned Tamil Tigers.

The temple's founder has been suspended during the investigation.

However temple members fear children in Sri Lanka who rely on their aid will die as a result of the ban.

Organisers say the temple raises nearly £500,000 each year, some of which goes to help orphans in Sri Lanka following the 2004 Boxing Day tsunami.
