(Classic Rock) Disgraced Lostprophets frontman Ian Watkins has been sentenced to 35 years in jail for 13 child sex offences. The term included 15 years for the worst crime of attempting to rape a baby. He will not be eligible for parole until at least 2036.

Described in court as a "determined and committed paedophile," Watkins, 36, admitted the attempted rape and sexual assault of a child under 13; conspiring to rape a child; three counts of sexual assault involving children; seven counts of making or possessing indecent images of children; and one of possessing an extreme image involving a sex act on an animal.

Mr Justic Royce, presiding, told a "shaking and convulsing" Watkins: "This case breaks new ground. Any decent person looking at or listening to material here would experience shock, revulsion, anger and incredulity. What you did plumbed to new depths of depravity." more on this story
