Sky News:- A man could be banned from having sex with his wife of 20 years because it is claimed she no longer has the mental capacity to consent.

The woman has learning difficulties, and social services bosses with responsibility for her care say there is evidence that her mental health has deteriorated to the point that she no longer has the ability to make decisions about whether she wants to have sex.

A judge in the Court of Protection in London – a specialist court which looks at issues involving people who lack the mental capacity to make decisions – has been asked to consider the case.

Lawyers representing social services bosses have suggested the judge might consider making an order barring the man from continuing to have sex with his wife to ensure she is not raped.

At a preliminary hearing, Mr Justice Hayden was told that the man had offered to give an undertaking not to have sex with his wife.

But the judge has made clear he wants to hear evidence and arguments from lawyers representing the woman, the husband and the council involved before he makes a ruling in the case.
