Ian Watkins lead singer of Lostprophets remanded in custody

Charged with six Child Sexual offences

Lostprophets frontman Ian Watkins has been remanded in custody after appearing at Cardiff magistrate’s court to face child sex abuse allegations.

The Welsh rock star is alleged to have conspired with a woman to rape a one-year-old child, he has denied the charges.

Ian Watkins, 35, of Pontypridd, appeared before Cardiff magistrates facing a total of six charges relating to sexual offences against children including a charge of conspiracy to engage in sexual activity with a child under 13 and four offences relating to possession and distribution of indecent images of children. He is also accused of two incidents of conspiring to engage in sexual touching with two young children; possessing, making and distributing indecent images; and possessing “extreme” animal pornography.

A 24-year-old woman has been charged with the same offences as Mr Watkins, and a 20-year-old is charged with five offences but not conspiracy to rape.

Bail applications were refused and all are due to appear before Cardiff Crown Court on 31 December.
