Father ‘speechless’ over Amy death

Mitch Winehouse has been left ‘devastated’ by daughter Amy’s death

Amy Winehouse’s distraught father has said he has been left “devastated and speechless” by her death.

Mitch Winehouse made the comments as he arrived outside the north London house where the singer was found dead on Saturday afternoon.

He was joined by the 27-year-old’s mother, Janis, to look at tributes left at the edge of police cordons surrounding Amy’s Camden home, including alcoholic drinks and cigarettes, alongside soft toys, flowers and candles.

He thanked reporters and fans for coming and shook hands with many of them.

The star’s grief-stricken mother was in tears when she looked at the tributes and took pictures of them on her mobile phone.
