Frank Humphreys, 51, and 23-year-old Eleanor Jackson both pleaded guilty to a charge of “having sex with an adult relative” during a brief appearance at Carlisle Crown Court.

The pair, of Princes Street, Cleator, appeared at the same court last year and denied the charge but they changed their pleas yesterday.

They spoke only to confirm their names and enter their pleas in front of Judge Peter Hughes QC.

They had sex between December 2011 and February 2012.

They will be sentenced in April. Sentencing was deferred for reports to be prepared. They will reappear on April 15.
