South Wales Police are urging people using Twitter and Facebook to discuss the Ian Watkins child abuse case to be careful about using information that may identify the victims involved in the case.

Detective Chief Inspector Peter Doyle said, "Clearly there is strong public feeling about this case and many people are using social media outlets to talk about the issues involved.

"However, there is a very real danger that some of the detail being posted will lead to the identification of victims which will cause a great deal of distress to them and their families.”
