Trial date set for Lostprophets’ Ian Watkins

Ian Watkins sex offences trial date has been set for 25th November.

The Lostprophets front-man, who appeared at a pre-trial review at Cardiff Crown Court via video link from prison, will face 24 separate charges – including two charges of raping a baby.

The 35-year-old, along with two women who cannot be named for legal reasons, are accused of 32 offences in total.

Last month, Lostprophets have announced that they have split up. They released a statement which read: “After nearly a year of coming to terms with our heartache, we finally feel ready to announce publicly what we have thought privately for some time. We can no longer continue making or performing music as Lostprophets. Your love and support over the past 15 years has been tremendous, and we’ll be forever grateful for all you’ve given us. As we look forward to the next phase of our lives, we can only hope to be surrounded by people as devoted and inspiring as you guys have been.”
