The rest of Lostprophets took down their website as soon as the news of Ian Watkins' arrest on child sex charges broke in December last year, with the other members posting in its place a statement to say that they were in shock and "learning about the details of the investigation along with you".

The 36 year old denies 24 sex offences including conspiracy to rape a baby as well as other sex offences involving children and child pornography.

The start date of his trial is set as November 25 and it will last up to four weeks.

Two women- aged 20 and 24 - who can't be named for legal reasons will also stand trial at the end of November.

In a Facebook post today the rest of the band confirmed that they would not be continuing.
