Cumbrian dad and daughter facing incest trial

A father and daughter are to go on trial accused of incest.

Fifty-year-old Frank Christopher Humphreys and his 22-year-old daughter Eleanor Jackson deny the charge and will go on trial later in the year at Carlisle Crown Court.

The two, from Cleator Moor, are accused of consensual sex between December 2011 and February 2012.

Humphreys is accused of having sex with his daughter “knowing that she was related to you in that way.” Jackson faces a similar charge.

Both denied the offence when they appeared before magistrates in Workington.

The case was sent to Carlisle Crown Court to be next heard on September 30.
