Ian Watkins, singer of Welsh rock band Lostprophets, has pleaded guilty to a total of 13 child sex offences including the attempted rape of a baby.

He had previously "furiously denied" the allegations.

The 36-year-old from Pontypridd had been due to stand trial at Cardiff Crown Court alongside two women.

Watkins pleaded guilty to attempted rape and sexual assault of a child under 13 but not guilty to rape. This was accepted by the prosecution.

Sentencing will take place on 18 December. Hywel Griffith reports.
