Moss leaves Britain after answering police questions



LONDON - Kate Moss flew out of Britain on Thursday, 48 hours after being interviewed by police over allegations that she had used cocaine.

The 32-year-old supermodel refused to speak to reporters before boarding a flight at Heathrow Airport bound for Miami. Wearing a black top and miniskirt under a beige coat, the unsmiling Moss kept her head down as she headed for the plane.

On Tuesday, Moss met detectives in London to discuss her alleged cocaine use, but was not arrested or charged with any offense.

The Daily Mirror tabloid in September published pictures allegedly showing Moss using cocaine in a west London music studio where her then-boyfriend, Pete Doherty, was recording with his group, Babyshambles.

Police said Moss was spoken to "under caution" for 80 minutes. To be spoken to under caution is an arrangement under English law that means police can use a person's answers as evidence in any future proceedings.

Police said they would eventually submit a file to prosecutors depending on the outcome of the investigation. Prosecutors will eventually decide if any charges should be brought against Moss.
