A nurse has been told she can return to work after the parents of a dead girl watched her have sex on the special waterbed they had kept as a memorial.

The girl was born with a neurological disorder meaning her bones were fragile so she had to have the special mattress.

Melissa Dye had offered to house-sit as the couple went on holiday, but when they returned and checked CCTV cameras she was caught on the child’s bed, which was in a specially designed sensory room, with the child’s clothes and possessions laid out. 

The nurse had first started caring for the girl at Chestnut Tree House Hospice in Sussex, before starting house calls.

After the couple saw the indecent on CCTV, they disinfected the room, claiming they could no longer smell their daughter's scent, which previously provided a source of comfort.

They had been informed by a neighbour about aman entering the house, and when the nurse did not reply to their messages, they logged in to the CCTV cameras remotely.

Dye argued in court that she had not failed to maintain professional boundaries, according to Court News UK.
