Scottish fans of rocker Pete Doherty rioted in Aberdeen last night (29SEP04) after he pulled out of a gig with his new band Babyshambles there.

The estranged LIBERTINES star was due to perform at Aberdeen's Lemon Tree venue, but failed to show up, claiming he was hurt after falling down the stairs.

Furious fans crowded round the band's tour bus as it tried to leave and seven people were arrested when police officers arrived to bring the 550-strong audience under control.

One fan tells web site NME.COM, "The aftermath wasn't very pretty, and saw disappointed young fans in tears at the realisation that they were not going to see their hero."
