ROCK star Pete Doherty was today fined �500 and given a 12-month driving ban at Lowestoft Magistrates' Court for allowing the use of a car without insurance.

Doherty, who turns 31 tomorrow, did not attend court and was represented by his solicitor, who entered a guilty plea on his behalf.

The former Libertines singer and Babyshambles front man was fined �500 for the offence and �100 court costs. His licence was endorsed and he was disqualified from driving for one year.

The charge relates to a collision in Hadleigh, Suffolk last September in which a man was left fighting for his life after being knocked down by Doherty's manager, Andrew Boyd.
