Lostprophets' Ian Watkins case: Ex-Ceop head warns others may slip through net

Child sex abuse cases like Lostprophets singer Ian Watkins will slip through the net due to a lack of resources, a child protection expert has warned.

Jim Gamble, ex-head of the Child Exploitation and Online Protection centre (Ceop), wants more money invested in regional child protection teams to catch online abusers.

Watkins admitted the attempted rape of a baby on Tuesday.

The UK Government said spending on tackling abuse was being "ramped up".

Nick Palit reports.
