You can almost feel sorry for Dundee police - as they saw Pete Doherty careering around the streets first thing this morning, they must have thought they were about to get an easy tick on their clear-up sheet. But Pete wasn't (noticeably) on crack, smack, cake or hake, but - happily - he was drinking.

It's illegal to be drinking in public in Dundee. Even before breakfast:

A Tayside Police spokeswoman said: "We can confirm that three men were stopped by officers in the Nethergate area of Dundee city centre at around 8.45am.

"They had alcohol taken from them, which was disposed of. They were given a warning and were allowed on their way."

[Doherty's] spokesman said that the singer was probably unaware of Dundee's city centre ban on drinking.

Almost certainly - he seems to be unaware of the British ban on crack, heroin and cocaine, and quite often of his surroundings.

He also seems to be unaware that he's not actually married to Kate Moss:

In an interview with Dundee's Radio Tay, Doherty said: "A lot of people basically are obsessed with the missus and I don't know really ... she's just a bird from South London."

He later added: "I can't get my head round it really."

Well, not if you're drinking Special Brew before your morning shower; you're going to have trouble getting your head around anything.

Meanwhile, Sienna Miller is nudging her way forward to try and take over Moss' Burberry contract - that's going to make any lesbian threesome romps with her frosty the next time; having said that, Mario Testino, who's due to shoot the campaign, is threatening to walk in protest at the treatment of Kate.

Burberry are having crisis talks:

Burberry's designer director, Christopher Bailey, confirmed: "Yes, Mario and I are going to meet next week to discuss the campaign. But I'm afraid I can't tell you any more"

Developing story still, then.
