A warrant has been issued for the arrest of musician Pete Doherty, after he failed to show for court.

Doherty, 28, was due to appear at Yeovil Magistrates Court to answer allegations of criminal damage.

He is accused of chasing a woman into a shop in Crewkerne, Somerset, after she took a photo of then girlfriend Irina Lazareanu in August 2007.

The Babyshambles star is now expected to appear before the magistrate later this week.
