Doherty moved to avoid attack

Incarcerated rocker PETE DOHERTY has been moved to a secure area of a London prison after thwarting a group of fellow inmates' plots to assault him.

According to reports, Doherty was informed of the convicts' plan of attack and asked to be moved to a segregated unit of the prison, where he is currently being held with 15 other inmates.

A prison source says, "He was quiet. He was calm. But he did seem pale - like Casper the ghost."

The Babyshambles rocker was jailed for 14 weeks on 8 April in Wormwood Scrubs penitentiary for "breach of time-keeping, non-compliance of his (probation) order and using different drugs".
