Moss 'to be quizzed' over drugs

Kate Moss entered a rehab clinic after the allegations
Arrangements are being made for supermodel Kate Moss to be questioned by police about allegations of her drug-taking, her model agency has said.

A spokesperson for London-based Storm said the model's lawyers were in talks with the Metropolitan Police for her to be interviewed.

Moss, 31, lost work and checked into a clinic after images of her allegedly using cocaine were published last year.

She was with then boyfriend, troubled Babyshambles frontman, Pete Doherty.

Doherty admitted drugs charges on Friday following a separate incident.

A spokesman for the model said talks had been taking place between police and her lawyers for a fortnight.

Faced arrest

"Kate has made it absolutely clear all along that she will co-operate with any police investigation when the necessary arrangements can be made," he said.

He would not say where the meeting would take place, adding details were still being discussed.

Moss, who lost contracts with H&M, Burberry and Chanel as a result of the allegations, has remained outside of the UK since the images were published in September.

Officers warned she faced arrest on her return to Britain because they had not received a response to their request for her to come forward voluntarily for questioning.

A Scotland Yard spokesman said: "We are in touch with the representatives of the individual, but not confirming any arrangements."
