Rocker Pete Doherty has been questioned by German police over a break-in at a music shop during which a guitar and a record were stolen.

Police in the southern city of Regensburg said a witness reported one of the three people involved was the 31-year-old Briton, who is in the city to work on a film.

They say Doherty and a German companion were questioned on Thursday.

The men told investigators they were on their way back from a bar crawl when one of the trio hit the window of the shop, which broke.

Police say the men said they could not remember details of what happened next because of how much they had drunk.

The guitar and record sleeve were later found in Regensburg's streets.

No charges have been filed.
