A WIGAN couple have appeared in court accused of ill-treating, neglecting or abandoning three children.

Graham William Cozens, 50, and Lisa Catherine Cozens, 43, of Corfe Close, Aspull, deny the charges which concern youngsters under the age of 16 when they appeared before justices at Wigan and Leigh Magistrates Court.

The pair were released on conditional bail pending their first appearance before a Liverpool Crown Court judge on September 15.
