Both Frank Humphreys, 50, and Eleanor Jackson, 22, pleaded not guilty at court to a charge of having “sex with an adult relative”.

Humphreys and Jackson, both of Princes Street, Cleator, appeared together in the dock at Carlisle Crown Court.

They spoke to confirm their names and to deny the charges during a brief hearing before the city’s most senior judge, Paul Batty QC.

The charges state they are accused of having sex between December 2011 and February 2012.

The case was adjourned for a trial early next year and both were released on bail.
