Ghislaine Maxwell has once more been denied bail ahead of her trial in the United States.

It is the sixth time the 59-year-old has been denied release from jail.

She is currently awaiting a trial for charges of sex trafficking, which she denies.

District Judge Alison Nathan promised in her ruling on bail that Maxwell would be taken from her jail cell to her trial “in a way that is humane, proper, and consistent with security protocols”.
