Peaches Geldof Probed By Police Following Ian Watkins Tweet

As the Ian Watkins child abuse case came to a swift end this week, the fallout was always going to carry on for a number of weeks. Of all people, Peaches Geldof decided to wade into the debate, naming and shaming the two mothers who were convicted alongside Watkins in the sexual abuse case.

The Geldof altercation comes after Watkins pleaded guilty to several counts of child abuse on Tuesday, being convicted alongside the two women who are said to have allowed Watkins to carry out his depraved lusts on their children. Obviously, this is an incredibly delicate subject, and as the names of victims of child abuse are always held in anonymity, Peaches' ill-advised rant against the mothers inadvertently made the children's identity all that clearer.

"The papers MUST name 'woman A & B' who offered up their babies to this monster," Geldof tweeted, later revealing their names herself in another Tweet (both of which have since been deleted, adding, "The names are...what sick, horrible women." Not only does this make the victim identity all the more obvious, it also breaches a court order.

Peaches' comments were unwarranted and unnecessary

A statement from the Attorney General read, "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."

What happens to Lostprophets now?

Geldof has since written an explanation for her actions on her Twitter, in which she claims "the names have been in public domain since December 12th when the court named them and put them up on their website for all to see," as well as apologising for any offence caused. A police investigations is still expected to take place.
