UK: Musician Pete Doherty jailed for possessing cocaine

Musician Pete Doherty was jailed for six months today after pleading guilty to possession of cocaine.

The 32-year-old, who was due to be playing Glasgow Barrowland tonight, was arrested in January last year by police investigating the suspected overdose death of heiress Robyn Whitehead.

The controversial singer, of Camden High Street, north London, has twice been jailed before and has repeatedly admitted possession of class A substances.
