A man is due at court today charged with the manslaughter of his partner and her daughter, who died from carbon monoxide poisoning.

Matthew Eteson, 41, of Church Road, Leyland, denies the manslaughters by gross negligence of his girlfriend Kelly Webster, 36, and her daughter Lauren Thornton, 10.

Kelly and Lauren, from Leyland, died on board a boat at Lake Windermere in Cumbria in April 2013.

The case is listed for trial at Preston Crown Court.
