Doherty's Home Gig Angers Landlord

LATEST: PETE DOHERTY's plans to stage a BABYSHAMBLES gig at his home have angered his landlord - who is determined to stop the concert going ahead.
Doherty's notorious band was booked to play at Moonfest in Wiltshire, England later this month (Aug08) - but local police stepped in and put a stop to the planned appearance, amid fears thousands of youngsters will turn up and cause mayhem.
And the rocker vowed that the show would go on, offering to stage it at his home in nearby Marlborough instead.
But now the Earl of Cardigan - who owns Doherty's country mansion - has stepped into the row, insisting he will not allow the band to play on his property.
In an email to local police, Lord Cardigan says, "Please advise your colleagues that 'Pete's house' is actually Sturmy House. That house is the property of the trustees of Savernake Estate and any such thing would certainly constitute a breach of his lease of our property. So, should Doherty's manager ever plan to carry out his threat, please be advised in advance that there are absolutely no circumstances in which the owners of that house where Doherty lives would ever sanction such a thing."
