SINGER Amy Winehouse has died today.

The 27-year-old was found dead in her flat in Camden Square in North London.

Police have confirmed the death which they said they were treating as "unexplained". Winehouse was as famous for her personal troubles as she was her singing talents.

The cause of death is unknown at this stage, however she had spent a number of years battling drug and alcohol addiction.

Her debut album 'Frank' was released in 2003 and was nominated for a Mercury Award. Winehouse herself won an Ivor Novello the following year.

It was the 2006 follow-up album Back to Black that catapulted her to popular acclaim.

The first single from the album was Rehab, about how people tried to encourage her to go in to rehabilitation for her addictions.
