Police force investigating new leads about paedophile Lostprophets singer Ian Watkins

Police are pursuing new leads in the Ian Watkins child sex abuse case after receiving a number of calls following an appeal for unknown victims to come forward.

Paedophile rock singer Watkins admitted two counts of attempted rape on the baby of a female fan, on the eve of a contested trial this week.

The former Lostprophets frontman's admissions included conspiracy to rape a baby.
The 36-year-old, from Pontypridd, South Wales, plotted the shocking abuse with the two mothers of the babies in a series of text and internet messages.

Senior South Wales police vowed to carry on investigating Watkins after his admissions at Cardiff Crown Court on Tuesday.

Detective chief inspector Peter Doyle said the force would 'work tirelessly to identify any other victims or witnesses and seek the justice they deserve'.

He also appealed for anyone who has been 'affected' by the Watkins child sex abuse case to make contact.

A spokesman for the force said today that it had 'received a number of calls as a result of the telephone numbers we published in the appeal'.  (more...)
