Peaches Geldof facing police probe after 'naming' Ian Watkins co-defendants

Peaches Geldof could face a police investigation after allegedly revealing the names of the two female co-defendants in the Ian Watkins child sex abuse case.

As previously reported, the Lostprophets singer stunned the world of music on Tuesday (November 26) after admitting to a string of sex offences - two of which were attempting to rape a baby.

Two females also admitted a number offences, with one of the ladies actually the mother of the aforementioned baby.

Peaches Geldof took to Twitter recently to highlight her disgust at the news, particularly in relation to the two females.

She posted their names after reading them on other websites before deleting the message. However, the two co-defendants' names should be kept private as it means the child may be identified.

Speaking about the leak of the names, a spokeswoman for the Attorney General's Office said: "We understand that the names of the co-defendants in the Ian Watkins case were posted online but have now been removed.

"As has been previously reported, the co-defendants were the mothers of the victims. Victims of sexual offences have automatic lifetime anonymity and the publication of names or information which can lead to their being identified is a criminal offence. This is a police matter."
