Kate Moss' ex-boyfriend Pete Doherty was formally charged with possession of cocaine and heroin yesterday (09JAN06).

The Babyshambles frontman, who was dumped by the supermodel after he failed to complete a course of rehab, is due to appear in London's Ealing Magistrates Court tomorrow (11JAN06).

And police are preparing to deal with rowdy fans of the drug-addled rocker, amid fears they could attempt to disrupt court proceedings.

A spokeswoman for British police says, "If there is an incident, then we will deal with it accordingly."
