The BBC have revealed that Watkins will be remanded in custody until his court appearance on the 31st of December.
More details from ITV; Watkins is apparently accused of “two incidents of conspiring to engage in sexual touching with two young children.”
These conspiracy charges are related to a period between May 1 and Monday, while the indecent images related to a period between August 12 and Monday.
Watkins’ defending barrister has also said that “his client would be denying alleged sex charges”.
Ian Watkins, the vocalist of Welsh superstars Lostprophets is to appear before Cardiff magistrates on Wednesday.
He is charged with the “conspiracy to engage in sexual activity with a female under 13 and possession/distribution of indecent images of children.”
These are obviously very serious allegations. South Wales police have asked anyone with any information to contact the Operation Globe incident room on 0800 056 0154; or NSPCC on 0800 389 5347; or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
More on this as we get it.
