Rocker Pete Doherty has been quizzed by cops probing the death of a man following a party attended by the star.
Mark Blanco plunged to his death from the balcony of an apartment in east London in December 2006, minutes after he was ejected from the bash for harassing the Libertines frontman.

Cops initially ruled the tragedy was not suspicious, but they re-opened the inquiry in December following pressure from Blanco’s mother.

Doherty has since visited a police station voluntarily to speak to officers about the incident.

The rocker’s solicitor Sean Curran says, “He did attend a police station to help them with their inquiries, but he attended voluntarily.”

A Scotland Yard spokesman confirmed the probe into Blanco’s death is ongoing.
