Musician Pete Doherty has pleaded guilty to causing criminal damage after smashing a photographer's camera.

The 29-year-old lost his temper with news agency employee Catherine Mead when she followed him around Crewkerne, Somerset, in August 2007.

Yeovil Magistrates' Court heard how he grabbed the camera and broke the lens after inviting Ms Mead and a colleague to introduce themselves.

He was ordered to pay 918.27 in compensation to Ms Mead.

The Babyshambles frontman was also ordered to pay 100 in costs.
