Pete Doherty has been arrested on suspicion of supplying drugs following the death of a documentary maker in January.

The Babyshambles frontman was questioned by police on Friday (March 19) along with four other people, and was bailed to reappear in court in April.

Two men, one aged 41 and another 28, were arrested on suspicion of supplying a controlled drug, BBC News reports.

The 41 year-old and a woman aged 53 were also questioned on the suspicion of attempting to pervert the course of justice.

Police were acting following the death of Robin Whitehead, a member of the Goldsmith dynasty, who was making a film about Doherty.

Whitehead – who called herself Robyn – was found dead in a flat in London on January 24 from a suspected drug overdose. At the time police said her death was not being treated as suspicious.

The filmmaker was working on documentary titled The Road To Albion, about Doherty's old band The Libertines, which was apparently nearing completion at the time of her death.
