Pete Doherty sang sea shanties to his mates as they bobbed about in Loch Lomond after their rowing boat sank. The Babyshambles star and five pals set sail for the VIP area after playing the Live at Loch Lomond festival on Saturday. But they ended up in the drink when their boat foundered more than 30 yards from shore.

Hellraiser Pete and his motley crew were dragged to the bank by one of their friends. Manager Adrian Hunter told the Record: "It was freezing and we had a laugh but it wouldn't have been funny if someone had died."

Organisers had laid on a luxury speedboat to ferry VIPs across the loch from the festival site at Balloch to the plush Cameron House Hotel. But Pete and his entourage decided to strike out on their own after hiring the rowing boat from a local "Para Handy-like figure".

Adrian said: "We were waiting for the official boat when we saw this old guy with a rowing boat and decided to take that instead. It was more fun. Halfway to the shore we lost an oar so the boat was drifting to the other side, but we didn't really mind. Then we realised it had sprung a leak and water was coming in fast. It sank about three quarters of the way over and we all ended up in the water. We were about 30 metres from shore - it was fucking Baltic and bloody deep. Pete kept our hopes up by singing sea shanties."

Adrian said his brother Kevin swam ashore, planted his torch in the mud to act as a beacon then rescued Pete and the others one by one. He added: "He swam like Tarzan and saved us all."
