Metropolitan police have confirmed the death of singer Amy Winehouse.

Superintendent Raj Kohl said police were called to her home in North London on Saturday afternoon and found the 27-year-old's body.

Ms Winehouse was pronounced dead on the scene and police have informed her family.

The singer won widespread acclaim with her 2003 debut album Frank, but it was 2006's Back to Black which brought her worldwide stardom, winning five Grammy Awards.
