Mark Leiser reports:

Peaches Geldof may be in trouble with the law after tweeting the names of the two mothers who allowed their babies to be abused by convicted paedophile Ian Watkins.

Geldof, the daughter of Live Aid founder Bob Geldof and the late Paula Yates, may now be investigated for contempt of court after breaching the lifetime anonymity protection orders that exist for victims of sexual abuse.
