Neighbors claim that a suspected Russian spy did not discuss the subject of work when asked.
Award-winning beautician Vanya Gaberova, 29, is also said to have drunk beer while sunbathing in swimsuits in the backyard.
Vanya is one of five Bulgarians charged yesterday with conspiracy to commit espionage after being kidnapped in February following a joint Met Police and MI5 investigation.
A neighbor at a flat in Acton, west London, said: “She never talked about what she did for a living.
“She was quiet most of the time.”
The neighbor added: “She went into the garden wearing something like you would wear to the beach.
“Then she drank a beer or two and the next time she drank a beer or two too.
“She really enjoyed sunbathing”
