Ian Watkins trial: Lostprophets singer pleads guilty to child sex offences, including attempted rape of a baby.

Lostprophets singer Ian Watkins has pleaded guilty to 13 sexual offences, including two of attempting to rape a baby.

Ian yesterday admitted he was a paedophile as he pleaded guilty to a range of child sex charges.

Watkins' lawyer Sally O'Neill QC said that the musician claimed he "cannot remember" the attempted rapes, which were captured on video just hours after he had appeared on a BBC Radio 1 show and took place in a hotel room in London's Shepherds Bush in April 2012. The footage was found in cloud storage belonging to Watkins. Government security service GCHQ cracked the password to allow access to Watkins' files. As the charges were put to him, Watkins reportedly repeatedly looked to his lawyers as he replied. 

He admitted two counts of attempting to rape an 11-month-old baby, but denied two counts of raping the child. 

The rock star also admitted possessing extreme pornography depicting a person engaged in a sex act with an animal.

The police chief in the Ian Watkins trial has described the case as among the most "shocking and harrowing child abuse" he has ever seen
