A jury has retired to consider its verdict in the trial of a former Labour MP accused of receiving £53,000 by making false expenses claims.
Southwark Crown Court, has heard that she was able to make the dry rot claim by "flipping" her two homes - changing which property was her second home and therefore allowing her to claim expenses on it.
She also allegedly changed dates on invoices for the work so that the money would be paid.
One invoice in August 2007 was for £14,805 - apparently for boiler repairs and work on her conservatory in her constituency home in Luton, when it was actually at her house in Southampton, the court heard.
