Final respects for troubled Amy

Final respects for troubled Amy

Amy Winehouse's fans, friends and relatives have paid their last respects to the troubled singer.

A convoy of vehicles, many with tinted windows, drew up at the Edgwarebury Cemetery in north London ahead of a private service.

Kelly Osbourne, wearing her hair in what appeared to be Amy's trademark beehive style, was among the famous faces invited to attend the ceremony.

Dressed in black and wearing a pair of dark glasses, she clutched a white rose in her hands as her car pulled up outside the leafy cemetery.

A gaggle of photographers, more used to capturing Amy's notorious appearances on stage and in the courthouse, lined the lane as mourners arrived.

They stood alongside a few dedicated fans who came to pay tribute to the 27-year-old, who was found dead at her home in Camden, north London, on Saturday.

The service comes after police revealed they will have to wait up to four weeks for the results of toxicology tests to establish her cause of death. A post-mortem examination carried out yesterday was inconclusive.

Producer and DJ Mark Ronson walked in through the gates unaccompanied as the last mourners arrived to bid the star a final goodbye.

Amy's bandmates, Zalon and Heshima Thompson, were among the select group included in the private ceremony which, according to Jewish law, had to take place as soon as possible after the star's death.

The singer's goddaughter, Dionne Bromfield, paid tribute to her today. Writing on Twitter, the 15-year-old singer said: "I feel like apart of my Soul has departed with the beautiful Song Bird Amy... Please Say a PRAY... She loved everyone.x".
