Paving stones bearing inscriptions of song lyrics penned by paedophile rocker Ian Watkins in his home town are to be "ripped up" and binned.
Words originally immortalised in a street in Pontypridd, South Wales, with pride are now an unwelcome reminder of the town's links to the former Lostprophets frontman, said local Labour AM Mick Antoniw.
A council spokesman said: "Rhondda Cynon Taf Council can confirm that granite paving featuring song lyrics written by convicted paedophile Ian Watkins will be removed from the streetscape of Pontypridd as soon as possible."
Peaches Geldof has apologised for tweeting the names of the two mothers whose babies were involved in abuse by disgraced rock star Ian Watkins.
In a series of tweets posted today the TV presenter explained that she had assumed the names were already "public knowledge".
"I deleted my tweets, however, and apologise for any offence caused as at the time of tweeting had only seen everyone tweeting the names at me so had assumed as they were also up on news websites and the crown courts public file that they had been released for public knowledge," she explained.
"Will check my facts before tweeting next time. Apologies and lesson learned."
Her comments come after detectives confirmed last night that they were investigating reports of what she had done and were in talks with prosecutors.
We are aware that the names of Ian Watkins' co- defendants have been published on social media channels.
Clearly, there is strong public feeling about this case and many people are using social media forums to talk about the issues involved.
We are currently in consultation with the Crown Prosecution Service regarding the matter and will take action if appropriate.
Our primary objective as an organisation remains the safeguarding of vulnerable people and children.
Victims of sexual abuse have a right to anonymity in order to protect their future welfare and we urge those discussing the issues raised online to be careful about using information that identifies victims in cases like this.
