Frontman Pete Doherty of rock group The Libertines failed to show up at a Camden concert last night - with fans being told a “medical emergency” was to blame.

Fans at The Electric Ballroom reported a long wait for the act to appear at an album launch event.

But in the end they were a no-show.

A message posted on the band’s Facebook page said: “Due to unforeseen circumstances tonight the Libertines have had to postpone their sold out shows at the Electric Ballroom in Camden and at the Ritz in Manchester tomorrow night.

“Peter, Carl, John and Gary apologise whole heartedly to their fans and will reschedule both shows as soon as possible. This will not effect any of The Libertines other commitments. HQ.”
