Singer Amy Winehouse, 27, has been found dead at her north London home.London Ambulance Service said it had been called to the flat at 1554 BST and sent two vehicles but the woman died. 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.
Last month, the north Londoner pulled out of the European tour after she was jeered at the first gig in Serbia for appearing too drunk to perform. The troubled singer had a long battle with drink and drugs which overshadowed her recent musical career. She pulled out of a comeback tour last month.
Winehouse had won widespread acclaim, aged 20, with her 2003 debut album, Frank. For 90 minutes, she mumbled through parts of songs and at times left the stage - leaving her band to fill in.
