Amy Winehouse

A report outlining the results of the inquest into Amy Winehouse’s death, intended to be sent to the singer’s family, fell into the hands of someone else, the Metropolitan Police have confirmed. It’s not yet clear exactly what happened, but police think the document “may have been delivered to an incorrect address”. It’s either that or it was dropped in a puddle. Anyway, the report was handed in to a police station in North London on Friday.

A spokesman for Scotland Yard said: “Police were informed that material relating to a forthcoming inquest may have been delivered to an incorrect address. Inquiries are now under way to establish the full circumstances of this matter”. The results of the inquest into Winehouse’s death in July this year are due to be publicly announced at a hearing on Wednesday.

In other Amy Winehouse news, her father Mitch has revealed that he has approached Girls Aloud singer Sarah Harding about being an ambassador for his Amy Winehouse Foundation charity, due partly to her alcohol problems for which she recently checked into rehab. He told The Sun: “If we could pick Sarah up when she recovers and put her in front of a school assembly to tell those kids the reality of drinking and alcoholism, it would be making a big start. Sarah will be ideal, but all in good time when she has faced her own problems. There might be some kids who actually take notice of what she has to say”.
