Lostprophets Singer Ian Watkins Faces Child Sex Abuse Allegations

According to the U.K.'s The Independent, Lostprophets vocalist Ian Watkins is in custody after being accused of conspiring with a woman to rape a 1-year-old girl.

On top of that, he is 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."

Watkins' legal representative has said his client will deny the charges.

Senior investigating officer Detective Inspector Peter Doyle has put a call out for any information regarding the case. "Safeguarding children involved in such cases is always a high priority, and as such measures have already been taken," he said in a statement.
