A WOMAN facing multiple charges of perverting the course has denied that she 'fabricated evidence' while on remand in prison.

Eleanor Williams appeared at Preston Crown Court yesterday after it was alleged she committed an act intended to pervert the course of justice while at HMP Styal.

The 20-year-old had been on remand in the Cheshire prison after she was charged with eight counts of perverting the course of justice.

It is alleged that she did a 'series of acts' to try to 'diminish the strength of the prosecution case' between May 28 and November 23 2020 which had a tendency to pervert the course of public justice.

She pleaded not guilty to the charge when he appeared at Preston Crown Court.

Prosecutors allege she falsified evidence and made false claims to the police of trafficking and sexual assault between October 20 2017 and May 22 2020.

The charges relate to five men.

The defendant, of Teesdale Road in Walney, is due to have a pre-trial review for her latest charge.

She is due to face a 10-week trial over the other charges, which she also denies, in February 2022.

She was initially remanded in custody over the charges and released on conditional bail in November last year.

Earlier this year Miss Williams' legal team asked a court to alter the conditions of her bail.

But that request was denied by a judge at Preston Crown Court.

A trial was due to take place in August but was pushed back to next year.
