BREAKING NEWS: Amy Winehouse Dead At 27

Such as sad end to such a promising life. Singer Amy Winehouse, 27, has been found dead at her home, the Press Association has reported.

Last month, the North Londoner pulled out of her European tour after she was jeered at her comeback gig in Serbia for appearing too drunk to perform. For 90 minutes, she mumbled through parts of songs and at times left the stage – leaving her band to fill in.

The troubled singer had a long battle with alcohol and drugs which overshadowed her musical career in recent years.

A Metropolitan Police spokesman confirmed that a 27-year-old woman had died in Camden and that the cause of death was as yet unexplained. According to Nick Buckley, the Head of News at Sunday Mirror, drink and drugs overdose suspected.
