Babyshambles star sings for Daniel Squires after his tragic death


Pete Doherty surprised mourners at a teenager’s wake on Monday when he got up to perform a moving set.

The Babyshambles star wanted to pay tribute to 16-year-old Daniel Squires, who died from bone cancer on 4 July. Pete, 29, had met the Tyneside fan at a gig.

He got up with one of Daniel’s friends for the impromptu performance at the Golden Lion pub in South Shields.

‘He was here for around an hour and a half,’ pub manager Lynette Gale tells the Daily Mirror.

‘He said that he wanted to come up to pay tribute. It was a lovely gesture and made it all special.’
