A finance consultant earning £90,000 a year who is accused murdering her baby has had her bail conditions changed again so she can spend Christmas abroad.

Clare Sanders, 43, is claimed to have killed four-week old Eva with Ukrainian Tomas Vaitkevicius, 44, at their home in south London in September 2017.

While Vaitkevicius remains in custody Saunders has been given the green light to travel abroad from Christmas Eve to New Years Day.

In July Sanders had her bail conditions altered so she could visit a friends in the city of London.

Then in October a judge agreed to change the terms so she could rent out her home on Airbnb while she stayed at a renovated oast house in Wadhurst, East Sussex.

Emergency services were called to her property, after a concerned neighbour heard Sanders screaming: "My baby, my baby."

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.

Judge Richard Marks QC told the court today: "They are just presenting their travel document because she is going abroad over Christmas with her parent.

"The travel date outset is Christmas Eve in the early part of the day, and the return is 1 January in the latter part of the day."
