Former Lostprophets frontman and convicted paedophile Ian Watkins is now being investigated for offences outside of the UK.

Watkins’ sentence of 35 years in prison was only announced today, but that hasn’t stopped news emerging that crimes further afield are now being looked into in Germany and the USA.

The Senior Investigative Officer on the Watkins case Detective Chief Inspector Peter Doyle today offered the following statement:

“Today’s sentence does not mark the end of our investigations and we will work tirelessly to identify any other victims or witnesses and seek the justice they deserve.  In the last few weeks we have received further information that will now be looked at by the investigation team.

“There are also investigations being conducted by other police forces around the world including Germany and the United States.

“Above all this investigation has been focused on the protection of children and my thoughts today remain with those victims.

“We would encourage anyone who has been affected by this case or other cases of child abuse to contact South Wales Police on 029 20634184 or the NSPCC on 0808 800 5000.”

As shocking as the revelations have been over the last weeks and months, it seems that they might not be over yet. [via NME]
