The former lead singer of British rock band Lostprophets has pleaded guilty to a series of sexual offences, including trying to rape a baby.

Ian Watkins, 36, was arrested last December and charged with more than 20 offences, including raping a baby, conspiring to sexually assault a child and making indecent images.

He had denied the charges but changed his plea today at Cardiff Crown Court and admitted 11 offences, including sexually touching a 1-year-old, encouraging a groupie to abuse her child and making child pornography.

Watkins will be sentenced on December 18.

Lostprophets - which formed in 1997 and had a chart-topping album in 2006 with "Liberation Transmission" - announced it was disbanding after Watkins' arrest.
