Just in: Kate Moss' lawyer Gerrard Tyrell has issued a specific denial about the Sun's crack use claims. Again, what isn't being said here is what's most revealing.

The Met, meanwhile has also put out a statement:

Police have said they could not confirm they are to look into the latest claims but that an inquiry would consider all the "relevant aspects".

A spokeswoman said: "We cannot discuss any individual in any case. It would be inappropriate for us to comment."

Which is, of course, as it should be - it would be an enormous breach of process for the police to issue specific statements about people it is currently investigating, but has not yet charged.

Which makes this more odd still:

Sir Ian Blair, the Metropolitan Police Commissioner, also got involved yesterday, saying he has been personally involved in the decision to investigate her possible drug abuse.

So, it's inappropriate to comment, unless you've got a knighthood, then.

I hope she sues The Sun's arse off. It's unfair to single her out when coke use is rife throughout the fashion industry and a fair few tabloid hacks are said to be partial to the odd line. Allegedly.

Besides, she's not known for throwing tantrums or turning up hours too late. Doesn't sound like a crackhead to me.

While it would be amusing to see her sue the Sun, it probably wouldn't do her much good - she'd have to demonstrate that by running the story, she had her reputation harmed, and - as News International lawyers have probably advised Rebekah Wade - it's hard to see that adding "crack" to the mix is going to do much to lower her standing right now...
