Troubled singer dies, aged 27
Terrible news, singer Amy Winehouse has been found dead at her home in North London just after 4pm today. She was only 27.
A police statement read: "On arrival, officers found the body of a 27-year-old female who was pronounced dead at the scene.”
The cause of Amy’s death is not yet known and enquiries are underway.
For the past few years the singer has struggled with drink and drug problems and had to cancel tour dates last month after a series of erratic performances.
Despite her well-publicised battles with substance abuse, Amy Winehouse was celebrated as one of the great musical talents of the last decade.
She released two albums, Frank and Back to Black, both of which were huge successes with critics and music lovers alike.
