Lostprophets Singer's Star Status Delayed Child Sex Justice?

.
(Classic Rock) Fears that Lostprophets singer Ian Watkins escaped justice for years because of his celebrity status will be investigated as part of a wide-ranging police inquiry.

Seven police officers have been served with gross misconduct notices as part of the Independent Police Complaints Commission's investigation into how allegations against the disgraced Lostprophets frontman were handled.

Watkins was jailed for 29 years in 2013 for a string of serious sexual offences against children. He 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 involving taking, making or possessing indecent images of children and one of possessing an extreme pornographic image involving a sex act on an animal.

Now South Yorkshire Police, Bedfordshire Police and South Wales Police are to be investigated over the question of whether he should have been caught sooner. more on this story
