Singer accused of stealing uniforms, cold meats, cutlery...
Pete Doherty

Pete Doherty has been questioned by French authorities after the theft of a trolley of goods from a train.

Ten years ago, The Libertines released 'Up The Bracket'. It's a sobering reminder of days gone by, with the atmosphere surrounding British guitar music standing in stark contrast to the buoyancy it enjoyed a decade ago.

So Clash thought it only pertinent to catch up with Pete Doherty. Recently announcing a string of solo shows across Scotland, the songwriter was forced to cancel dates in Inverness and Glasgow due to "unforeseen circumstances".

It seems that those circumstances, though, might include a bit of theft from a French railway company. Posting on his website the Albion Rooms, Pete Doherty explained that he wanted to go see Noel Gallagher's High Flying Birds in Toulouse but lacked transport.

"the train is out of the question. I am currently in discussion with SNCF regarding my accountability for a missing trolley-load of staff uniforms(gaberdine wool mind you), cold meats, cutlery".

A reminder of better days...
