Frontman Ian Watkins is set to appear in court later today...
Lostprophets frontman Ian Watkins has been charged with sexual offences against children.
The singer is set to appear at a Cardiff court today (Wednesday 19th December) after being charged with conspiracy to engage in sexual activity with a girl under the age of 13 and the possession and distribution of indecent images of children.
Two women, thought to be aged 20 and 24 from Doncaster and Bedford, have also been questioned at a Cardiff Bay police station and face similar charges.
Senior investigating officer Peter Doyle said: "Specially-trained staff are available to speak to anyone with concerns or information regarding this investigation and a dedicated telephone number has been set up.
"I want to encourage 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."
Watkins is yet to comment on the allegations.
