Amy Winehouse papers go astray

Have your say

Information relating to today’s inquest into the death of singer Amy Winehouse was sent to the wrong address, police admitted yesterday.

Police were informed on Friday that material concerning Winehouse had been delivered to the wrong property. It was later handed in to a police station in north London.

Scotland Yard said: “Police were informed on Friday October 21 that material relating to a forthcoming inquest may have been delivered to an incorrect address.

“That Friday evening the material was handed in to a police station in north London.

“Inquiries are now under way to establish the full circumstances of this matter.”

The singer was found dead at her flat in north London on July 23. Because of her very public battles with drink and drugs, news of her death was quickly followed by suggestions it could be related to one or the other but toxicology results showed there were no illegal substances in her body when she died.
