A £90,000-a-year finance consultant who denies murdering her four-week-old baby has asked for her bail conditions to be varied so she can rent out her home on Airbnb.
Clare Sanders, 43, is accused of killing baby Eva with her Ukrainian lover Tomas Vaitkevicius, 44, in September 2017.

Emergency services were called to a Georgian property in Streatham Road, Mitcham, south London, after a concerned neighbour heard Sanders screaming: “My baby, my baby.”
Little Eva was alive and taken to hospital but suffered such severe injuries to her head and spine that her life support was turned off the following day.
Vaitkevicius denied murder and causing or allowing the death of a child when he appeared via video-link from HMP Wandsworth.
Sanders did not attend court but her barrister Ronnie Manek applied for a bail variation allowing her to rent out her flat at Renshaw Coroner on the Airbnb app.
OLD BAILEY TRIAL
Mr Manek said the 43-year-old was planning to stay at a friend’s oasthouse in Wadhurst, east Sussex, while renting out her home.
He said: “She rents out her property from time to time and occasionally stays at a close friend’s home in Wadhurst, east Sussex.
“This variation would allow Ms Sanders to make an income from renting out her flat.
“The curfew of 11pm would still apply to whichever property she stays in.”
Judge Mark Lucraft QC allowed the bail variation for Sanders, which will come into effect on 17 October.
Sanders had her bail conditions varied by a judge in July so she can see her friends in the City.
