Ms Maxwell’s attorneys details the “highly confidential” material in a proposed protective order filed at a Manhattan court on Monday, arguing it should be kept out of public view.

“The highly confidential information contains nude, partially-nude, or otherwise sexualised images, videos, or other depictions of individuals,” which Ms Maxwell does not wish to be “disseminated, transmitted, or otherwise copies,” it reads.

She has pleaded not guilty to all six charges on the indictment.

It is thought the sensitive material relates to Ms Maxwell, but it is not known who else might feature.

When the FBI raided Epstein’s Manhattan mansion last year investigators found a stash of nude photographs of underage girls. A black book of clients was also discovered, which contained the names of a number of high-profile figures.

(New York State Sex Offender Registry via AP, File)It appeared on Monday that prosecutors at the Southern District of New York (SDNY) were blindsided by the filing, noting in response that they had been in discussion on what discovery materials should be made public and only disagreed on two details.

“The government had understood those discussions to be ongoing,” they wrote.

Prosecutors and Ms Maxwell’s legal teams asked Judge Alison Nathan to resolve two disputes about the evidence. Ms Maxwell’s attorneys wanted any witnesses, including alleged victims, to not be allowed to use evidence for any purpose beyond preparing for her criminal trial.

The Duke of York has denied all accusations.

In that case, US District Judge Loretta Preska ruled last Thursday that the 80 documents in question – which run to hundreds of pages – should be unsealed this week.

It is expected that the files will expose fresh details about Ms Maxwell’s sex life as well as her relation to powerful figures accused of taking part in the abuse of the late financier’s victims.

The attorneys worry that public disclosure of the material in the criminal case could not only prejudice a jury ahead of Ms Maxwell’s trial, but also taint any pending civil cases.

Ms Maxwell’s attorney also sought permission to be allowed to identify witnesses and alleged victims who had “already identified themselves by going on the public record”.

“There is a substantial concern that these individuals will seek to use discovery materials to support their civil cases and future public statements,” Ms Maxwell’s legal team wrote in the Monday filing. “It is therefore vital that the government’s potential witnesses and their counsel be subject to the same restrictions as Ms Maxwell.”

The heiress unsuccessfully sought a gag order last week restricting the prosecution, investigators and victims’ attorneys from talking about the charges against her.
