Amy Winehouse was ''beyond help''

Sources say paramedics could do nothing when they arrived at the singer's house in North Camden, at 3.54pm.

They say the singer was "beyond help"

The house is currently cordoned off as it is being treated as a crime scene. A large group of people have gathered on the street outside to pay their respects.

Amy was born in the Southgate area of north London to a Jewish family who were the source of her interest for jazz.

She was the youngest child of taxi driver Mitch Winehouse, and Janis Winehouse, a pharmacist.

She had an older brother, Alex.

Her inspiration came from her father after he constantly sang around the house, often Frank Sinatra songs. Amy also took to a constant habit of singing to the point that teachers found it difficult keeping her quiet in class.

She attended the prestigious Sylvia Young theatre school. Sylivia has this evening paid tribute to the star.


Amy Winehouse was last seen on stage a month ago during a sometimes shambolic performance in Belgrade.

The show was recorded by one disgruntled fan on a mobile phone:


Showbiz correspondent Lucy Cotter says fans weren't impressed with her last-ever public performance which was in Belgrade.


One fan filmed the event.

Amy Winehouse: dead at 27

Singer Amy Winehouse has been found dead at her flat in north London.

Police found her body, when they were called to the building, believed to be her home, in Camden Town, shortly before 4pm.

She was pronounced dead at the scene.

Her death is being treated as unexplained.

The Back To Black artist cancelled all tour dates and engagements last month after a series of erratic public appearances.

That album won her 5 Grammy Awards.

She had been troubled by drink and drugs problems throughout her career.

Gordon Smart from The Sun says it's really sad news;


Showbiz commentator, Martel Maxwell, says it's tragic news;


Amy's father Mitch was in New York when he was told of the news earlier, he is flying back tonight.

Her family has spoken in the past of how they felt Amy was introduced to drugs by her former husband Blake Fielder Civil and had never touched narcotics before they met. He served time in prison leaving the singer with a number of legal troubles.

Presenters Myleene Klass, Philip Schofield and Fearne Cotton are amongst those paying tribute on Twitter.

Former Prime Minister Gordon Brown's wife Sarah has described today's events as tragic.

The singer embarked on a tour of Serbia only last month, but received bad reviews and was booed off stage after she appeared intoxicated. Her managers have received criticism for allowing her to tour.

Island Records is also said to have been unimpressed with her recent 'comeback' work and had no plans to release any of the new material.

The troubled singer made her last public appearance on Wednesday night when she joined her god daughter Dionne Bromfield on stage at The Roundhouse in Camden.

The singer danced with Bromfield and encouraged the audience to buy her album in the impromptu appearance before leaving the stage.

An Inspector is due to make a statement from the scene within the next ten minutes.

Barn Elms Rally a success despite the weather

Rugby legend Lawrence Dallaglio and actress Patricia Hodge were among hundreds of rain drenched Londoners to take part in a demonstration against plans to base a giant construction site on picturesque riverside playing fields.

Barn Elms is one of south London's most popular sports venues and an unspoiled greenfield nature spot. It attracts around 10,000 visits at summer weekends.

Despite its ecological and social value the site has been earmarked by Thames Water as the 'preferred' location for a seven year excavation and waste transfer compound to help build the Thames Tunnel 'super sewer'.

The proposal has sparked a fierce backlash from concerned Londoners. The campaign is now being spearheaded by a coalition of residents, councils, MPs and GLA members called the Save Barn Elms Alliance.

The group, which orchestrated Saturday’s rally, hope that this latest show of strength will help convince Thames Water to rule out Barn Elms as a main drive shaft site.
