Cumbria detective denies misconduct charges

A detective has denied six charges of misconduct in public office, including trying to persuade a woman involved in an investigation to have sex with him.

Det Con Mark Fisher, 48, is also accused of showing the woman confidential police pictures.

Mr Fisher, of Cockermouth, denied the charges when he appeared at Carlisle Crown Court.

He has been bailed and is due back in court in February. His trial is due to take place in July 2011.
