Lostprophets’ frontman Ian Watkins has reportedly been arrested following an extensive police investigation, according to The Guardian, and was charged with sexual offences against children. Watkins is due to appear in court today.
Police have confirmed that “the 35-year-old has been charged with conspiracy to engage in sexual activity with a female under 13 and possession/distribution of indecent images of children.” South Wales police revealed Watkin’s identity, making note of “the rock group Lostprophets”.
Two women aged 20 and 24 were also busted for similar offences on account of the police sting. All three are being questioned by police.
Senior investigating officer Detective Inspector Peter Doyle reached out to “anyone who has any concerns or information which they think may be relevant to contact us…Safeguarding children involved in such cases is always a high priority and as such measures have already been taken.”
