Lostprophets' Ian Watkins moved to psychiatric hospital, 'on suicide watch'

Lostprophets frontman Ian Watkins has been moved from Bridgend prison to a psychiatric hospital as he prepares to stand trial.




The 36-year-old has denied 23 sexual offences involving children, including two counts of raping a baby. He is on suicide watch and is being monitored five times an hour, a court has heard.

The 'Rooftops' singer appeared via video link at a pre-trial review today (August 13) at Cardiff Crown Court.

His defence barrister Sally O'Neill said: "He has been seen by a clinical psychologist and she believes he should be receiving anti-psychotic medication… She wants him to be taken to a secure hospital for assessment and treatment.

"He is on suicide watch five times an hour."

Watkins's trial is due to begin in November. He has denied all of the child abuse charges he is facing.
